I may be a little obsessed with making things with old book pages. My last craft projects have all consisted of old book pages. I love them! They are just so vintage looking and I love old vintage looking things!
Can I just say that this project took way longer than necessary!!! But with two little munchkins, I didn't really have a choice! :) This took me two days to complete. If you know me, you know I that when I start a project I like to finish it the same day. I just hate having projects laying around the house. So it was killing me when I had to stare at it for two days on my table unfinished!
I got my inspiration from one of my previous projects.....you can find it here and you can also find the instructions on how to make a paper fan.
Old book pages
11 red hearts (different sizes)
11 black buttons
Large piece of cardboard
Mini clothespin clips
Step 1. Make your paper fans. Make 2 different sizes!
I made about 12, but only ended up using 11. You can find my tutorial here.
Step 2. Make a frame to glue your fans to. Map out your heart than draw a hear onto your cardboard
Step 3: Cut out your frame
Step 4: Paint your frame. I only did this because I didn't want brown cardboard showing through.
Step 5: Hot glue your fans to your frame. (it's easier to map it out first so you know what you are doing when you are glueing)
Step 6: Make the word "love" out of scrap pieces of paper. I actually printed on some scrapbook paper the word love and then cut it out and glued it to some red cardstock.
Step 7: Tie your twine to your frame from one side to the other
Step : Hang your letters with the mini clothespins.
That's it! Super easy and super affordable. I didn't have to go out and buy anything for this project, which is a good thing because who knows when I would have made it to the store! :)
I have mine hanging on an angle--like in the picture. I like it better this way rather then straight up and down.
