Book Page Crafts

February 18, 2015Elena aka. Midsommarflicka

Hey there! Welcome to another round up of fun crafts!

Besides everything crafty reading is definitely my biggest hobby and passion. Although I’ve never blogged about books in the last nearly three years that I’m blogging – I may have to change that! Anyway, thanks to my deep love for books I also have a love for any craft related to books. And that’s why I collected a lof od crafts and DIYs made of old or new book pages! Oh, and of course can all these ideas also be made with some regular crafting paper…

As usual, Erlend has something to offer (sorry, I just adore his blog & ideas so much!), like these bookmarks. Although I would need to search loooong time before I had a book that I could cut apart without shedding a tear! But if I had cut the book already I wouldn’t be afraid to use the pages for some tags!

I know, I know… we are all awaiting spring and not autumn. But I can’t change that we have the topic of book page crafts today (okay, I could… but I don’t want to!). So please check out these (maybe) autumnally book page leaves!
(How to uncover a German blogger? It’s the one who wants to write “leafs”!)

And if your love for books runs really deep, you could also cover parts of your home in some pages – like the switch plates:

    I understand about not wanting to destroy books, but I have some that have some mold on them and I think I can make some of those initial books with them. I had to just toss them and am so sorry to lose them, but this looks like a good solution.

      Oh, that’s a wonderful idea to save these books that had to be thrown away otherwise!

    The great part about this is that there are a lot of books out there that could be used for these awesome projects! There is a Goodwill Outlet near where I live. It’s basically a giant room where like items are dumped into large rolling bins. There are tons of ripped, broken, and unloved books just waiting to be turned into art. I’d rather them be turned into these than thrown into a garbage bin. :)

      Oh yes! I’m with you!
      Sadly I haven’t found a store like this here where I live… But I’ll keep my eyes open! :)
