Book Page Fringed Flowers

Pair these Book Page Fringed Flowers with Book Page Roses for a gorgeous floral arrangement!


Crafting 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.

How to:

Begin by trimming three medium-sized book pages to 4 inches wide.

Stack 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.

Unfold 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.)

 Place the looped end of the wire on top of a piece of fringed paper, in the uncut area at bottom.

 Secure 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.

 Cut a piece of floral tape to 8 inches, and wrap the wire tightly, stopping about halfway down the wire.

 Cut 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.

 Trim the petals in the center of the flower to 1 inch. Trim the next ring of petals to 1 ½ inch.

 Spread the petals apart by flattening the center with the palm of your hand.

    Loved the spoon roses.

  2. I tried to choose pages that were heavy with one color on the front and back, so that the flower had a more consistent coloring.
