Quotes On Pages of Vintage Book

Looking for a one-of-a-kind print? This original artwork can be created using salvaged pages from a vintage dictionary or book. Each print is unique, as no two pages are the same.

For the book I went to Goodwill and found a vintage book of quotes. It only cost me a couple of dollars.  You could also use an old dictionary or any vintage book you have lying around.

I separated the pages of the book by removing the spine to reveal the glued binding. Using a hair dryer, I heated up the glue and easily removed the pages one by one without cutting or tearing.

Next I used a free stock photo site and found some images I wanted to print on the pages.

On my computer, I setup a document the same size as my book page and placed the image in the document. After I got the image looking the way I wanted, I inserted the individual book pages into the printer and pressed print.

The final pages look amazing. I suggest framing or hanging from a clip board or clothespin.

Upcycled Sugar Mold

This is one of my recent finds at a local vintage market. You might be asking yourself what it is? It is a sugar mold, and just like it sounds, it was a mold for sugar.  Raw sugar cane syrup was poured into the holes. And once it dried, the syrup formed raw brown sugar cones, which was how sugar was once sold to customers.

So what am I using it for?  I decided to purchase some succulents and small clay pots and turned it into a beautiful table accent.  Simple and easy.  It turned out great.
