Creating a Valentine Banner from Old Books6:37:00 AM
An easy and inexpensive project using discarded books.
For a while I worked in our school library so I knew just where to find the supplies I needed for this project.
I'm giving these discarded children's books a new life.
I began by tearing out a few pages from the old book and cutting them into the shape I wanted for the flags on my banner.
Using string and my new glue gun, a much loved Christmas gift, I folded over the top of the paper and hot glued it to the string.
Now for the fun part... cut hearts, use sequins, photos, whatever makes you happy to customize each flag.
These cute little banners can be made in any size to fit your need. A large book for a big beautiful mantel sized banner or cut tiny flags to decorate a small vignette.
I hope I've inspired you to give it a try today. Grab an old book and some glue and get started.
