On the 12th (not consecutive) day of Christmas Beyond The Picket Fence Showed me...how to make an old book Christmasssy. I have a confession--I love old books, I hoard old books. I love their fabric covers, and their yellowed pages, and the illustrations, oh my. But, I don't do much with them. Partially, because I feel badly tearing them apart and partially because well, so many books, so little time. I decided they aren't doing much for me sitting in suitcases so it is time to use them. So, here are a few Christmas ideas using old books.
First, I made a Christmas card holder.
here. I love these tags for a bottle of wine, tied to a gift, or simply hanging from the tree. And hey, nothing says Christmas like a native about to be hit with a club (it is green and red!!).
