Get ready to re-purpose your old books! Instagramer and Etsy shop aficionado OruFun has got some of the coolest patterns to fold the pages of your old books into amazing examples of pop culture-inspired works of art.
Continually making us jealous of the page-folding expertise that results in beautiful sculptures displayed on both the Instagram and Twitter feeds, we’re happy to see that the patterns themselves are for sale on Etsy. That means you too can not only have these magnificent works of art but feel pride in knowing that you made it yourself. The designs for sale go so far as to explain exactly how many pages you’ll need for each design and come with a tutorial as well (thank goodness).
Imagine heading on down to your local bookstore bargain bin to rescue and re-purpose some old and unloved books into these masterpieces. An old and out-of-date textbook from childhood? Now it’s Deadpool‘s head! A healthy living cookbook you purchased and never even opened because, come on, who were you kidding anyway? It can be an homage to Batman v. Superman! A college book you were “required to purchase” and now have no re-sale value because the school has moved on to a newer version that you also somehow need to buy? Well it can now adorn your shelf proudly as the Star Wars logo!
