easy book page letter

I'm all about initials, since I got married I think I put a "D" in every corner of our home! I was really happy to go from W all the way up the alphabet to D! Oh Yeah! :)
So, after I saw one of my friends cover her last name initial in book pages I knew I had to do it too.   I actually bought a cardboard D to make my own embossed metal letter, but I never got around to it, so I covered it with pages from a book instead.  All I did was cut pieces from the book and modge podge them on.  That's all! 
I love the old timey feeling it gives off, and of course I can't let anything go just plain, so I had to add a flower. ;)  I simply cut a circle out of burlap and and circle out of scrapbook paper.  I crinkled the paper a little  so it would look more like a flower, then added a button.  Really can't get any easier than this project.

Just one book can go a long ways too, I have made a few book page wreaths, this letter, and a few more little things using the paper, you can score books for next to nothing at garage sales! On a side note, I got this lamp at Dollar General, if you need a cheap lamp go there! Seriously it was like $7.

Anyway, this is just another simple way to personalize your home for next to nothing!
