3-D Book Page Art

3-D Book Page Art

In this day and age of digital media, print is quickly losing its relevance. Instead of sending your much loved print titles to the landfill, why not make 3-D book page art out of them? It’s as easy as recycling an old frame and learning a little origami. For the project shown, I found a book page flower tutorial online and followed the instructions. I then painted the flower with milk paint and added gold for effect. Next, I framed an unaltered book page, then glued the flower to the page and voila! There are so many possible interpretations of this project. Why not create an origami bird instead of the flower, or frame a beautifully illustrated vintage book page without the 3-D origami?
