Pair these Book Page Fringed Flowers with Book Page Roses for a gorgeous floral arrangement!
1Crafting with old books is a great way to give them a second life. We love books, so please, only use damaged books for your recycled projects.
1Begin by trimming three medium-sized book pages to 4 inches wide.
2Stack the pages, then fold in half width-wise. Fringe the paper by cutting slits about ¼ inch apart. Leave 1 inch along the bottom uncut.
3Unfold the papers. Cut a segment of floral wire to 12 inches. Make a loop in one end. (This prevents the petals from sliding down the wire.)
4Place the looped end of the wire on top of a piece of fringed paper, in the uncut area at bottom.
5Roll the paper tightly around the wire.
6Secure by wrapping with a 3-inch piece of floral tape. Pull the tape tightly while wrapping. Repeat with the other two pieces of fringed paper.
7Cut a piece of floral tape to 8 inches, and wrap the wire tightly, stopping about halfway down the wire.
8Cut two teardrop-shaped leaves from paper. Pinch around the wire, then secure with a segment of floral tape. Finish wrapping the remainder of the wire.
9Trim the petals in the center of the flower to 1 inch. Trim the next ring of petals to 1 ½ inch.
10Spread the petals apart by flattening the center with the palm of your hand.
