The peacock is my favorite. I dropped little drops of glue with a fine applicator onto each feather eye (hard to see here) and then sprinkled different colored glitter! Love me some glitter!
Aren’t these cards great? I bought a 50 pack of plain cards at Michael’s ($4 with my 50% off coupon), used my stash of dictionaries (I have several, but haven’t paid more than $1 for any of them) and some adhesive to make these cards.
I used Google Image search to look for various fun drawings to print on the pages. So, tape a dictionary page to a printer size paper. Find an image you want on your dictionary page and copy it, then paste into a word document (his is how I do it, may not be the easiest way). Adjust the size to fit the size of the cards you have and then center the image on the document so it will be in the center of your dictionary page.
Then just print…I just taped the top of the dictionary page to the paper so it is easier to remove. All the pages printed just fine that way.
These are really striking as cards. You could also make a paper to be be Mod Podged onto canvas, or just frame a full size print. Another cute idea would be to print on sheet music.

They are so cute and fun! I would have to buy some other used books to do it with because I just love my dictionaries too much!
