Old Book Pages
Cut out pages from damaged or weeded books to make bookmarks. Dress it up with ribbon. Original site no longer available.
I love handwritten notes, recycling and the smell of books (new and old). This is the perfect combination.
Wrap Smart… Each year 38,000 miles of ribbon is thrown away during the holidays. Look for creative ways to wrap packages like brown paper bags and twine, newspaper, magazines, maps, comics, children’s art, a lovely scarf or other bit of fabric. Buttons, bells and other small trinkets make fun adornments in place of lengths of ribbon curls.
Old catalogs and phonebooks take on a new life in this delicate sculpture. Made in France, this piece of art ($39) is comprised of careful folding techniques. For more book art sculptures, visit Etsy.com/shop/Abadova.
New Star Design from Vintage Bookpages from the blog House revivals:this is a star made from rolled vintage book pages. The original idea was to create a kind of "shadow box" and add a nativity silhouette in the center, but on a whim I suspended a pretty ornament in the center, instead.

Use an thrift store book without its spines to create this charming tree. See the link for this Readers Digest project tutorial. Then simply glue gun on your button, beads and sequins. Top with a ribbon. (I would use three different size books to create a trio of trees.)
