Book Paper Flowers

With the popularity of ebooks and the Kindle, sadly real books are becoming a thing of the past. I still love the smell of a brand new book! I’ve always been a bookworm and just love the actual experience of sitting down with a cup of tea and a good book 🙂

So this business of making flowers out of books seemed a bit painful to me at first. But I went to Goodwill and found an older book for .50 that looked like one I would never get around to reading lol…but even so, it took me several weeks to actually get up the gall to rip it up!

But making flowers out of the pages is a beautiful thing! I love these! There even a way to take care of the acidic paper …so tune in below!  And if you don’t want them to be just plain paper, then simply jazz them up with Ranger Inks, Stickles Glitter Glue, or whatever else you have handy!

  1. Neat. I like this idea. I have a ton of books. And once in a while the library will just get rid of some old magazines/books. They are old and stuff but that wouldn’t matter here.

    • And also at yard sales, there are always lots of text books that are now irrelevant. Now that wouldn’t be paiinful at all, especially if it was computer science or math…lol

    • Oh man, it did take me a lot to tear it 😦 I keep thinking, “what if that was really a good book?”, but I consoled myself by looking at the first really boring chapter lol
