Paper flowers from old book pages

These flowers look lovely, very easy to make as well. I would use regular newspaper or magazine pages instead of chopping up a book.

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.  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.

What you need
  • Recycled Book Pages
  • Water Color
  • Water
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors
What to do

Step 1. Simply water color both front and back of the book pages and let it dry completely.

Step 2. After the pages are try, cut out petal shapes with scissors.

Step 3. One by one, shape a rose by bending and folding each petal and pinching the bottom into the desired shape.
