Flower Wall Decor

I have been staring at cardbaord cereal boxes and wondering what to do with them. I love all the different shades of brown and gray. When it finally hit me that I should make a wall decoration.  I cut the boxes into squares and rectangles.  I layed them out on the floor and changed them up until I found a design I liked. 

 I hot glued the cardboard together, then I made the book page flowers.

Book Page Flowers:
I took an old Readers Digest and tore out pages.

Next I folded the paper in half vertically and cut out a leaf.

I then applied a drop of glue onto the edge of the leaf and clothespinned it.

After the petal is glued repeat on more petals and then glue together.
Final Product:
