Book Page Craft Projects Incorporated Into Your Home Décor & CCBG 35

This week for {CCBG #35} I am giving you some incredibly simple ideas on how to incorporate a Book Page Craft Projects into your Home Decor. I am in no way advocating the destruction of books but if it the book is falling apart and losing pages than I am all for recycling, reusing and repurposing a book page or two into something fun and unique. Scroll to the bottom for the Link Party and my favorite link of the week.

Book Page Craft Projects- Wreath

Book Page Wreath Gallery Wall

This wreath is made from an old children’s story book and the pages were literally falling out of the book. I liked these particular pages because they were 9×12, had large type print and there was a red graphic that added some contrast to the print. I also liked that the pages were darker and slightly tattered around the edges showing their age a bit.

Book Page Craft Projects – Fall Garland

I recently made this garland for my fireplace mantle using book pages from an old dictionary. The book had water damage and some of the pages were lose and falling out. Rather than tossing the book I careful pulled pages out and used my $1 flea market stencils to spell out the word “grateful” onto the book pages. Then I hung a piece of twine across the mantle and with mini clothes pins I attached each of the book pages. This really was a simple project with a fun and quirky impact on the room. It definitely sparks conversation.

Book Page Craft Projects – Picture Frame

I picked up this vintage, domed picture frame at a flea market for a couple of dollars and had it in my stash for a while. I really love the round, white, chippy frame and the domed glass gave me an opportunity to add something special to the frame. I lined the back of the frame with old book pages and the domed frame acts like a shadow box and holds some of the dried flowers from my son’s funeral. As an added bonus, you an see that I have a stamped book page inserted into my vintage typewriter for an added unique touch.

Book Page Craft Projects – Handmade Note Card

In a technology driven world, it is still nice to receive a hand written note and a handmade note card is even better. This note card has a layered flower on it made from a book page. I love the texture it adds to the card along with the color combination of red, black and white.

    My daughters wedding bouquet was made out of dictictionary pages. I made the flowers and the florist attached the stems and arranged it. Such a fun keepsake.
    Your collection is beautiful. Love the wreath!
