Paper Ornaments

For "Junk"le Bells in May

A page from an old paper back book, fan folded and secured with hot glue with a found Santa attached to the middle. I wanted to have mor of them made by now but just didn't get it done.

I included the photo I found on the internet where I got the idea. I think they would be cute made into a garland or banner spelling out MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Have a Happy Holiday!

  1. Gosh, I love creating with old books. Both the pages and the covers--this is neat! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Very sweet! I love anything made from old print. I am making some Christmas chains from song sheets. The little Santa is cute. I need to make some of these, they could just be embellished in so many ways and I think you are right, they would look great as a banner.

  3. What a wonderful idea! A great way to reuse those yucky paperbacks at my parents house - the ones I can't even give away because they don't have covers, and have been read and re-read until the pages are falling out.

    Very creative!!!

  4. How fun! I followed your links to other projects with old paper and need to do some chains too. I have lots of mashers and love the way you finished them off. Time to start looking for some old books. Job well done.

  5. Junkle Bells...tooo cute!
    Girl, after reading your profile and seeing that Junk and Photography are two things that make you rock, I had to roll on over here and check you out :)
