Crafts Made from Vintage Book Pages

Books... I love to read them, love to collect them, and when they are old and no one else wants them, I love to craft with them. They provide such a neutral base with their tiny black type on aged-white pages. They're inexpensive and easy to find.

I have an entire board on Pinterest of 40 vintage book craft ideas I've collected from the web. These are just a sampling.

You don't really need vintage books to work with, modern ones will work as well. The aged books that are a bit yellowed just add a nice bit of depth to the paper. This book wreath and vase were made as samples for a library program. If you want to make something similar just do a web search for the tutorials--there is quite a few out there.

How about this sweet little origami dress ornament from Folkhaven? The black glittered belt and silver thread add simple, shiny touches.


The Nester has a ton of ideas on her site, including these sweet drink or cupcake flags.

This beautiful set of wings is perhaps my favorite. So elegant with a rhinestone center and such a unique decoration for the wall, door or back of a chair. These are from Renaissance Soul. They are heavenly!

Have you made anything with book pages? Add a link to your comment if you've written a post about a craft like this or have seen a great idea online. I'm always looking to add more ideas to my Pinterest board.
