Book Page Ornament Snowflakes

4 Materials
30 Minutes

This year all over Instagram are these big paper bag snowflakes. They're cute and would make a perfect addition to your holiday decor. But I wanted to put a twist on them, so I made book page ornament snowflakes instead.

I had lots of left over book pages from my Halloween decor. So I used the same logic from the paper bags and made some big snowflakes.

This DIY is so easy because you only need three things and you probably already have them all at home! Book pages, glue, and scissors.

There are two different ways to make them and they both come out looking pretty similar. You can either fold your book pages in half or in thirds.

Each of them is unique and will look great in your tree or hanging as decor around the house. They also make great gifts!

Rip pages out of a book and let them soak in tea and then dry

Once dry, fold the pages in half or in thirds along the shortest edge

If you fold in thirds it will look like this.

If you fold in half it will look like this.

Then fold the page in the half so the two shortest edges are touching

Glue along the middle of the fold so the two halves of the paper are glued together

On the outside, glue along the middle and bottom edge, stick the next bundle onto this.

Keep gluing more and more pages together, cutting shapes in the edges as you go.

Continue doing this until you have 12+ sheets glued together.

Open the snowflake up and glue the two sides together to complete your snowflake

These make great tree decor or gift toppers!

    Wait! These are lovely, but did you forget to tell us to cut little clips out to make those little lacy holes?

      So sorry I don’t have a picture of cutting the edges. It’s easiest to do it before all the bundles are glued together, but can be done at the end. Just make sure all the cuts line up!

      So sorry I don’t have a picture of cutting the shapes. Just cut triangle, circle, or any other shape you want. It’s easiest to do it before all the bundles are glued together. Just make sure all the cuts line up!

    I have 3 questions because when i click on link to blog i get 404 error, can't find.

    is the size of the finished flake is determined by the size of your page?

    do you suggest clipping one page and then use that as a template for addition pages so your design lines up?

    how much tea and how long do you soak?
