Christmas Book Tree

While cleaning out a drawer, I found an old Webster’s Dictionary and went to toss it – and then grabbed it back out of the trash.  I decided it could become a Christmas tree!  After Googling around a bit, I came upon this tutorial and gave it a try – and here it is!

I added the chunky Champagne glitter to the edges using Tombow Purpose Glue.  Because I was afraid I’d run out of the glitter, I also mixed in some clear.  (I would not have run out – but I do like the look)

To finish my tree I glued it on a wooden spool that was wrapped with Champagne Glimmer paper and tied an organdy bow.  On the top I hot glued a small ornament.  I can’t wait to make more!  Hugs, Fran
