I have done so many recycled book page projects including wreaths to magnets and other embellishments! This one is one of my favorite. I saw these paper flowers in a Better Homes and Gardens magazine several months ago and I thought I’d finally try it out. I thought they would be perfect for gift wrapping. It’s a unique way to add personality to your gift. I kept all the pages from the Hollow Book Safe I made a while back so it worked out perfectly. Here is how you make these recycled book page flowers in three easy steps.
The only materials you need are:
- Recycled Book Pages
- Water Color
- Paint Brush
Simply water color both front and back of the book pages and let it dry completely.
After the pages are try, cut out petal shapes with scissors.
One by one, shape a rose by bending and folding each petal and pinching the bottom into the desired shape.
I hope you try it out! The color possibilities are endless!
