My searching has led to some pretty fantastic book-page projects that I thought I'd share with you.
There are so many fun crafty, holiday decor projects all over the blog world right now. Here are a few of my favorites.
I'm thinking that pottery barn inspired the craze with their book page wreath last year...
(here's a tutorial for a knock-off!)
holiday cheer book wreath--I love the addition of the red ornaments to this wreath.
paper rosettes--gorgeous gift bag embellishment.
book page garland--easy and fun to do with kids!
origami Christmas wreath--this would make a cute ornament.
heart ornament--so sweet--this one might be my favorite.
music wreath ornament--this was made out of pages from an old hymnal!
paperback christmas tree--so simple and beautiful.
This post from Alisa Burke on crafting with book pages has all the ideas you need! I love these beautiful flowers as well as the gift tags, envelopes, and garland. (The gift tags are REALLY beautiful.)
Any of these would be beautiful with pages from a damaged children's book. You know, the ones your kids accidently tear, spill apple juice on, scribble on, drop in rain puddles, or munch on for snacks? I like finding old ripped up or written in books at our local goodwill.
Do you have any book crafts to share with me? I'd love to see them!
