Vintage Book Page Shamrock Banner

       Here's a fun and easy banner made with old books.

This can be a very controversial subject... using old books in a project causes some a great deal of concern. 

Please be aware that these books were saved from being thrown out and I'm giving them a new life with my project.

I began by cutting a flag shape from a page of the book. 

You can cut any shape. 

I attached the flags to a length of string with hot glue

When I had as many flags on my banner as I needed, I added a shamrock sticker to the center of each flag.

You can hang your easy to make book page banner anywhere but I like hanging mine over the repurposed wreath chalkboard I made recently.

I hope you'll give this project a try and not worry too much about ruining a book. 

Some books like in this case, deserve a new life after they are discarded.
