Projects Using Book Pages

After tearing covers off of books for this project, needless to say, I had quite a few books without covers. Here are some ways that I used the leftovers . . .


First off, I took four of the books, and tied them together with twine. Then I used some letter stamps and Staz On ink and stamped the word "Love" on the edges of the pages.

 
How simple is this?!?
To add a little holiday zing, I put a sprig of holly in the twine.


Next I glued pages to the chipboard letters J, O, Y.
Once I adhered the page to the letter, I sanded around the edges to get rid of the excess. This is how I kept the edges so smooth.
I got the letters at Hobby Lobby- half off! So they were only $.99 apiece!
Sweet and simple.
 
 
Once I remove the holiday berries, I can have them out all year.


I sewed this book page garland in under 15 minutes.
I followed the tutorial I found here.
Super easy. Super cute.

 
I even used a few strips to pep up this wooden spool garland.
Book pages, old spools- who wouldn't love this?:)
 
Swing back by on Monday and I'll show you how these projects were used to decorate for a Christmas party.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
 
Cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning, for in You do I trust

I love them all! Book crafts are some of my favorite things to make. I made a Christmas village out of books this year. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
