Collect your favorite scrapbook paper and turn it into a beautiful Easter wreath! Cut the paper into 2- to 6-inch squares, then roll (with one corner sticking out the top) into petals. Secure each roll with glue or tape. Starting around the outer edge, hot-glue the rolled squares to a large cardboard or foam circle. Continue gluing, working in a circular pattern, until you've reached the middle.
