I have this fetish right now for things made from old book paper and I have found some amazing photos on Pinterest of things creative people have made useing the old book pages. I know some people freak out that we cut up old books but I look at it as recycling…especially if the books were already in bad shape. I find most of my books at thrift stores and pick the ones that have yellowed pages. Below you will see a wreath I made for my mom and she used it has her centerpiece on the table here on my other blog called Dress the Table (that I haven’t updated in quite some time but there are some great tablescapes on there too!).
This wreath is from a fantastic tutorial you can find here on Living with Lindsay
This amazing ornament is from LoraJeans Magazine blog here
she gives a full tutorial on how to make them. Lora was inspired by Martha Stewart. .
How about this gigantic rose made from kraft paper! This is from Sunday Evening Blog and she also shows a great tutorial on how to make this and others.
