flowery words...

 These decorative flowers are a great recycling project.

Start with a damaged book.

Crack the spine and remove a section of the pages.

Using 4 pages fold them accordion style.

Cut the corners off one end.

Use some standard kitchen skewers.

Slide the pages onto the skewer.

Open the flower up and tape it together.

Add a center to the flower and you're done.

This is a really fun and easy project.

Very cute. Is that the book lent you?
