Flowers are always a hit, but Book Page Flowers are really special.
It is no secret that I love working with paper. I really enjoy making these little book page pinwheels into flowers. I am an avid reader and sometimes I come across and “not so” good book that I can justify using it’s pages for a project. The older and more weathered the book, the prettier the flowers.
I created my book page wreath using the same technique as I did for the following Book Page Flower tutorial.
Pick out a “not so good” book and carefully remove the pages.
Fold the book pages in an accordion fold. Each flower uses three accordion folded book pages.
Pinch the pages together so that they resemble a butterfly.
Remember these guys from elementary school? Open and wrap one of these fasteners around the three folded book pages.
Once the fastener is securely around the pages gentle open up the book pages to create the flowers.
I used wooden chopsticks as the stems.
I attached the chopstick to the flower with hot glue-gun. Wood skewers would also make great stems.
