This is one of my favourite thing to do.
(I have a little store on an Australian handmade craft site called Madeit.
You can find me here by the way:
Anyway, I wanted to show you how you can reuse the yellowing slightly aged paper from vintage books no longer wanted.
I guess I have a bit of an artist in me because I do occasionally love to draw.
I also love to reuse, as you have probably guessed!
So I decided to draw these drawings on vintage paper. They are made to be framed and look gorgeous when they are.
A cute bird.

Another project idea I have made with old books is folded pages. Ive only done a few of these, but they are a nice talking piece in my home.
Well I hope I have given someone, some new inspiration for their Upcycling adventures. Paper is great to work with and if you can't draw, why not put a page through the printer and print a picture you like. Easy as that.
Insects like butterfly's are a great idea and look fantastic in a library nook or on a desk.
Have fun that's the main thing.Happy Upcycling
