I was looking up craft ideas for old books when I came across these beautiful paper flowers-
Of course, we had to give them a try! Here is a quick video preview. The supplies and simple steps are listed below.
You will need pages from an old book, scissors, a glue gun, floral tape, and a skewer stick (Money Saver- You can purchase a package of 100 skewer sticks from Walmart for about $1.).
Simple steps for paper flowers:
Finally, add floral tape to the skewer. This step is optional. You can keep the stick natural or paint it as well.
Voila! Your finished paper flower!
I had so much fun making the original black and white flowers, that I made another trip to the thrift store to purchase a bigger variety of used books. Childrens books, cook books, music books… way too many books for how much paper these little flowers require. Hahaha. In fact, I made so many paper flowers, my daughter and I included them in a craft fair at the library.
You can also use scrapbook paper or origami paper instead of book pages.
AND the size is adjustable!
So many options!
