I am obsessed with repurposing old books and love making paper flowers, so I have decided to show you how I have joined both my passions to make - book page roses.
There are many variations on how to make paper roses, however I feel this is one of the easiest and quickest methods to achieve a realistic looking flower.
If you like my tutorial then please vote for me in the 'Book it' contest. Your vote is muchly appreciated.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:
- a medium sized old damaged book that won't matter if you rip the pages out of. Please do your research and ensure you aren't destroying a first edition one of a kind antique book.
- scissors
- hot glue and hot glue gun
- a stem, I use cloth covered wire from the local craft shop, but you could also use a recycled coat hanger, skewer or thin stick as a stem
- a toothpick or skewer
<p>I hope mine turn out as good as this!</p><p>I have to try, they look simply amazing</p>
<p>Nice project, easy to do and wonderful results. I used newspaper for the roses instead for an art show that is featuring up-cycle as a theme. The finished productis a 1940's style cocktail hat.</p>
Made it for a special someone :) one from a book, one from sheet music and one from an atlas
Fantastic instructable! I changed up a few little things, mainly the stem, and it turned out great!
