Buy an old book from the thrift store cut out 3 sizes of petals from your pages. Use a small piece of cardstock as your back, hot glue large petals around first then fill in with smaller petals and a paper clip as your hook. Easy Peasy!!

It really is that easy to make your own vintage book page flowers.
They can add depth and interest to any room.
As a curtain tie back.
To accentuate a birdcage, or even as a replacement for a bow on top of a present. I like to have them all over my home anytime of year.

    I'm sure that I couldn't bring myself to cut up one of my quilt books, Katherine T.

    I've been quilting over 30 years. Now if I found a quilt book at the thrift store I might do it. It would sure be colorful

    I only use books from the thrift store. The most I ever pay for them is $1. Irene, I think quilt books would make gorgeous flowers!!

    this would be sooo sweet to make as a romantic little gift for a girlfriend or boyfriend. Get an old cheesy romance novel from a thrift store so the "petals" have words on them like "ill love you forever" or "kiss me now!!" hahaha <3 love it.
