Just the pages . . .
Decoupage is a technique whereby paper is glued to an object and then sealed with varnish. It is a lovely and durable decorative technique, and using book pages lends oodles of charm. You could decoupage chairs, table tops, small wooden boxes, or any other item that you wish. A friend did the rim of a cheap full length mirror, and it looked amazing. Iíve even seen entire walls!
Book pages make the most beautiful origami paper. You can make animals for children, art for your home, and ornaments for the holidays. For a good friendís 30th birthday, I bought 30 little trinkets and made 30 origami balls to house them. She had a blast opening all them over the course of a few weeks. Origami is timeless and terrific.
3. Gift Accessories
You can use book pages as wrapping paper, in place of tissue paper, or as fancy packing material. Or, cut out a pretty shape and use it as a gift tag atop your present.
