So we did. Or, she did. I actually just watched.
The only materials we needed were old books, silver and gold paint, a piece of cardboard, and a hot glue gun. Paula's turned out great! I'm hoping I can get my act together and make one before the end of the holiday season.
We painted the gold and silver on the edges of the pages to make them a little more defined and to add a little more color.
At the end she filled in the gaps with extra book pages and added some more paint to some of the paper to make it glitter a little more. Then we added a ribbon and hung it up.
|Gorgeous. I wish I had one.|
