Book Page Fireworks!

I have seen book pages made into lots of things but I was thinking that for fourth of July there couldn't be anything better than book page fireworks!
So here are mine and of course a quick tutorial so you can make your own!
Book pages
utility knife
Scrapbook paper

Start by cutting out the shape of your firework on the interior of the book.  Cut away all of the excess while leaving the binding intact. 
When your shape is cut glue the edges together so that they make a cylinder.

It should look like this when the glue is dry.  
Then add a thin piece of rope to make the wick.
Then paint the outside edges the desired color.

Next add yor scrapbook embellishements.

Then display them with pride!
