How To Make Flowers By Recycling Book Sheets

How to make flowers by recycling the sheets of books

Today we are going to see  how to recycle sheets of printed paper. It could be the pages of an old book that we no longer need or even notes that we have at home or an old manual that we will never use (do you have any computer manuals out there? This is perfect).

Materials.

The necessary materials are:

  • Folios with printed letters.
  • Scissors for various cuts (or simple).
  • Green paper.
  • Wooden skewers (of Moors).
  • Silicone.

Instructions.

We tear off as many leaves as we want to make flowers and cut the blank margin at the top and bottom.

We fold the leaf in half lengthwise and cut it into thin strips, we will not cut the entire leaf. The blank margin will serve as a guide.

If we do not have the scissors to make five cuts at the same time, we will use normal scissors.

We cut a strip of green paper for the center of the flowers and cut it into fringes as well. We unfold the page of the book and stretch it as much as possible with our hand, folding it back to the opposite side.

We glue the two edges of the leaf with glue stick, it is important that the paper is hollowed out, thus creating the shape of the flower petals.

On the wooden skewer we glue one end of the colored fringes with hot silicone. Then we will apply glue stick on the fringes from below and rolling. When we finish with the colored paper we continue with the printed paper.

We finish rolling and gluing the printed paper. With our hands we bend the petals slightly outwards so that the center of the flower can be seen and it has a nice shape.
