12 Days of DIY Christmas ~ Day 4 ~ Paperback Ornament
This was not so easy but I was so proud after I got the first one done and then it became easier as I went along. So I will try to explain every step, but don’t get discouraged, just try it again and I am sure it will turn out great! Everything looks better with glitter! By the way ~ it gives it more character when its not quite perfect!
~ Paperback book
~ Spray adhesive
~ Embellishments of your choice
1. Cut the book into 1 inch strips. Now this part is a bit tricky, it would be easy if you have a industrial size paper cutter. I had to use scissors and this book wasn’t huge so I cut a few strips and cut a few more until I got through the whole book, leaving the binding in tact.
10. Once the ornament is completely dry, take a ribbon or some sort of decorative string and attach to the ornament.
