What materials did you use? An old paperback book, about 9" high, 5.5" wide. Most of the pages had black drawings on the top, which created an interesting pattern in the finished "vase".

What are you most proud of? That lovely, interesting pieces of art can be made from something probably everyone has lying around--books we'll never read again!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Once you try this simple one, branch out by folding the pages in different ways. It's fun, relaxing and gives quick results. Would make a wonderful last-minute, made-just-for-you gift, too!

So pretty! Looks great next to the black mirror and adds so much texture!

Very nice. I love the detail on your books pages. I have completed my first book however I didn't think to look for a book with interesting detail like yours. Thanks for sharing. Great job with the accessory and placement. LC
