I came across a wonderful little shop, The Petal Peddler’s Shop while browsing Facebook a few months ago where the owner creates gifts crafted from old books, and I want to share it with you! Allegra crafts the most beautiful flower bouquets out of the pages of old books or favorite keepsakes.

About The Petal Peddler’s Shop:

The Petal Peddler’s Shop specializes in handcrafting beautiful flowers from unique papers like upcycled book pages.

Established in 2018, The Shop has created nearly 1,000 flowers which are incorporated into gift bouquets, ornaments, shadowbox artwork, centerpieces, wedding florals, and more.

Each flower is handcrafted by artist Allegra Murray and made-to-order. No machines, templates or punches are used, allowing the artist to carefully select the elements of the paper to be showcased.

For more information about The Shop or to order, please visit ThePetalPeddlersShop.com or follow on Facebook/Instagram @ThePetalPeddlersShop.

My take on gifts crafted from old books:

What better gift can you give to the book lover or romanticist in your life? Does your significant other have a favorite book? Why not have a flower handcrafted, petal by petal, into a nostalgic keepsake that they will love?

I know as a bibliophile and an avid crocheter, I would love a flower bouquet crafted from an old lace doily pattern. Not only would it bring my two passions together, but also give me loving reminders of the grandmother who taught me to crochet at her knee when I was just 5-years-old.

Would you like to order a much more special gift? Why not send Allegra one of your children’s drawings? She creates masterpieces from artwork. You can send Allegra your keepsakes and she will integrate them into a one of a kind gift just for you or your loved ones.
