A few weeks ago Jennifer and I had one of those fabulous yard sale shopping days…you know the kind I mean. Each stop was better than the next. We brought home quite the mother lode. At one of our stops we purchased these antique books for the grand investment of .50 cents. Now, the books aren’t in great condition as you can see. They are each from the late 1800’s and have seen better days. We bought them with then intention of taking them apart for paper crafts. The pages are wonderfully aged and have the perfect antique patina.
I’ve been making paper flowers of all types for as long as I can remember. I wanted to use these vintage book pages to make paper roses. Here’s all you need:
- Book pages or newspaper – I prefer vintage
- Hot glue gun
Lets get started!
Tear out a book page…
