Hi there! I made these to try out a new technique for a Halloween swap. My partner liked to do a lot of paper crafting, so I thought she might like these.



I had these pages lying around; I'd cut them out of a book that I had been using for an altered journal, to make space. I've seen similar things online, so I wanted to try printing images on them with my own printer.



I'll tell you what, the hardest part was getting the printer to agree to print on weirdly-sized paper. I think I finally went for a setting that was a bit smaller than the actual page, and it seemed to work okay. Here's some better shots of my favorites:







I didn't realize the weird header that last one had until after I'd successfully printed on it. It makes me wonder what the heck that chapter was about, since I didn't actually read the book before I started cutting it apart.

Anyway, try it out yourself! It's a nifty way to make cool images even cooler.

Very cool idea and they could be used in a number of ways. Smiley

This is great! I wanted to try something like this, but wasn't sure I could just print from my printer. Now, I think I'll give it a shot. Thanks for sharing.

These are great, I have heaps of old book pages, like seriously a whole big box full may have to use some of those by doing this.

Also I picked up a very unfortunately titled old book from a thrift store last week called "Our Dick"........... so at the top of every page it has those words on it!

It can be so hard to use up book pages - I'm still working on the pages from that same book, I have about half left! And that is a rather unfortunate title; I'd be tempted to make some gag illustrations with it. Wink
