Book page leaves

 I saw this cute idea on the Mad in Crafts blog and, as usual,
had the harebrained idea that I could do it... 
I started with this paperback book - an old one from my daughter.  Have you read it?
It's pretty depressing.  I didn't particularly care for it, so I was ok with cutting it up!
I traced a silk leaf or two and cut them out of pages.  
Along the way I found treasure...
The Girl doodled during English class...but she always made such nice grades!
Several coats of modge podge later, a little hot glue, and...
I tucked the leaves into the wreath I already had hanging on the front door.  Hmmm...mine doesn't exactly look like a PB knockoff...but I think I could make a few more leaves to use elsewhere in the house...
Or maybe the wreath needs something else - whatcha think?  Mums?
 Personally, I think this is the last year for this straw wreath as it is trying to fall apart...
