Millersburg Ohio Bed and Breakfast Repurpose Old Books

Here at the Millersburg, Ohio, Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast, I am always looking for ways to re-purpose old things.  This year I have made beautiful creations out of old books.  They can be placed on any surface; however, I've chosen to place them on Christmas tree branches.

Re-Purposed Book

Before cutting up pages in a book, make sure that it is not a valuable 1st edition. I have found that I like smaller-size books, and I prefer books with stiffer paper.  The first book I did is an old dictionary which has very thin, fine-quality pages.  It is harder to make the tree stand up if using finer pages.



Supplies:  Old book
                Template of tree image
                Razor knife
                Piece of cardboard
                Glue stick
                Tacky glue
                Wooden stir stick or equivalent
                Scrapbooking paper, old Christmas cards, or other colored paper
                Gold glitter spray             
                Ribbon
                Photos and any other desired embellishments

Open the book near center.  Place your tree template on page and draw placement.  Place cardboard three pages behind the tree page. Cut around the tree, leaving the base, or trunk of tree uncut and attached to the page.  You will be cutting through three layers of pages. With the glue stick, place one swath of glue between the three trees.  I like to leave the boughs of the tree unglued so that they kind of feather out.

Determine what color paper or Christmas card will look good in the "tree window."  Glue it into place and glue down the pages on top of it. Note that darker-colored Christmas cards look better.

Next cut approximately 1 1/2 inches of the wooden stick and glue it to the back of the tree so that it will stand up.  Glue it with tacky glue.  You will need to prop it until it dries.  Spray your finished book with  glitter spray, tie ribbon on opposite side of book and embellish as desired.
