Today I want to share an idea from a magazine that sort of spring boarded the whole idea for starting this blog. Let me give you a short clip of the story.
When I began thinking about starting a blog I could not decide on a focus. During my break one day from work, I went to the bookstore and picked up a special issue of the “Better Homes and Garden’s” magazine called “Do it Yourself.” After reading through the entire magazine, the idea for this blog came into being because it reminded me how much I enjoy crafts, interior design, and improving one’s interior space.
So for today’s idea, I’d like to share one of the projects featured in the magazine.
Book Page Flowers
This is a simple way to make a unique and lasting flower bouquet. In general, take an old book, tear out the pages, die them with watercolor, fold, glue and add stems. Arrange in a vase and voila, a simple decoration that any bookworm would love. It would look especially clever in a home that had a library or book corner. You could also use different types of paper, like scrapbook paper. This little project has plenty of room for growth (no pun intended).
Has anyone ever tried something like this? Feel free to share your experience!
