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?

A Homemade Safety Gate

Corralling pets takes creativity sometimes. This homemade safety gate creates enough of an obstacle that you can usually keep your little critters from the hazards of stairways and other forbidden areas in your home. Create a frame with 1″ PVC pipe and four corner joints. Cut two PVC pipes to the width you desire and two pieces to the height you’d like. Join them together, and sew a gate sized pocket to slide the frame into. Stitch up the forth side of the pocket (or sew in velcro or buttons), and you’ve got a safety gate to keep those four-legged friends from running amuck and getting hurt.
