Making a Book Page Flower

MISC 03.28.15
Buy an old book from the thrift store cut out 2 sizes of petals from your pages. Use a small piece from a cereal box as your back, hot glue large petals around first then fill in with smaller petals.and a paper clip as your hook. Easy Peasy!!

    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!!
