Upcycle Book Pages into Easy Paper Flowers

Hey there, Here's a super-simple, easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy DIY  I whipped up for you guys!
Tools & Supplies:
Glue Stick, Brads, Scrap Paper and Book Pages (I used pages from an old Star Trek novel-yes, I'm one of those geeks who like to read star trek. lol. )
1. Paint you book pages with watercolor- I used some purple.
2. Cut petal shapes from your pages.
3. Glue the tips of them together to make a flower shape.
4. Stick a brad through the middle and Voila! Cute & easy flowers!

I haven't decided what to use them on yet, but they would be great on a scrapbook layout, cards etc.
xo, Katie
