One of my favorite Christmas gifts this year came from my Buddy, B. She's a sneaky little thing and sent me a handmade gift that went straight to my heart. I have to admit, I had never seen this craft project, but she tells me it's all over the crafting blogosphere. I have been a bit remiss in my blog readings of late...so I've missed this adorable idea.
It's a wreath made from the pages of a book- two different books to be exact. The poetic justice is that she one of the books she used was from Janet Evanovich. (If you have been reading this blog or following my podcasts with Beth, you would really see the humor in that.) The other novel used was from author, Lori Foster. (Another old favorite of mine...)
I absolutely love this idea! It is completely adorable and personally meaningful. I've decided to hang this wreath on the french doors that lead into my office/library. The perfect place! This way I wll be reminded regularly of my friend who lives afar, but is never far from my thoughts.
I love the detail. I'm such a freak, I was trying to guess the books by reading snippets from the rolls of book pages. I totally figured out one of the books before she told me the other novel. (which by the way, she derived great pleasure in tearing out the pages...i.e. Janet E.)
If you would like to make one of your own- type into google, "book page wreath" and you will be overwhelmed with images and how to's! It looks like a lot of fun....I might try one myself!
