Well read flowers

I am really loving all of the projects made out of books. I am also in love with all of the cute flowers made out of fabric/felt. I wanted to do something to combine the two and this is what I came up with:



They are super easy to make. All you need are book pages (I used newspaper that I sprayed with Archival mist), adhesive (I used hot glue), scissors, and something to embellish the middle.

First I drew the shape on to the paper and cut out 2 pieces.



Then I kind of pinched (both flower shapes) the paper and made creases so that the finished flower would have a little texture:



Then I hot glued the 2 shapes together and finished it off with a button:



This project cost me absolutely nada. I had everything just sitting around!

I'll be linking this up to all of my favorite linky parties...check out the linky party tab above to see all of them!!

Fabulous! Nice way to recycle old newspapers too! I made paper flowers too, for a craft and made a note tree..the intent there was to get rid of a horrendous old novel I had!!

I am featuring you at my Penny Pinching Party tomorrow so come over and grab an "I Was Featured" button if you like. I love these flowers and I especially love that they look relatively easy to do and they are something my kids could do with me.

Hi Stephie- You are so creative. Working with newspaper is always fun, but I never have seen this. I especially like how you pleated each cutout before gluing together, that little detail makes the flower pop and so cute.
