Summer Pinterest Challenge: Repurposed Book Pages

Since I still seem to be on a bookish crafting roll, I thought I would embrace it and participate in YHL's Summer Pinterest Challenge this season. I've been following John and Sherry Petersik's blog for well over a year now, drooling over their DIY projects and house renovations, and now that I have a blog to display my own creative endeavors, I thought I'd jump in on this challenge.

I was very inspired by Crafty Texas Girls' Bookpage Monogram, Arrow & Apple's Bookpage Jars, and the Vintage Votives at Annaboo's House. Unable to settle on just one of these projects, I did one of each.

Each one took about 10 minutes or less. I have to say the most fun to do was my Bookpage Monogram. I loved picking out the font for the R & J. I might have even loved picking out the page to print on more [I chose a romantic scene, to keep the sentiment consistent, of course, haha.]

I'll be linking this project with the Summer Pinterest Challenge link-up over at Young House Love, Bower Power, Centsational Girl, and Ten June!


  1. I used stamped book pages for the table numbers at my wedding and I think I spent a whole day picking which pages to use from each of our favorite books. Your monogram looks great!

  2. Heather, I love that idea! I will be squirreling that away for the future-- It's okay because Pinterest has made it socially acceptable to plan for a wedding without being engaged yet.

    Gabriella, thanks a lot! It looks even sweeter with the lights off.... I guess I shoudla photographed that. :X
