It was so fun to hear all of your book recommendations. There are several I need to hunt down at the library for sure.
If you're not a giveaway winner and want to make your own book ornaments, click here for the tutorial.
I also tried out a few variations when I made a few more.
- No-sew option...I tried using my glue gun down the spine of the book to hold the pages in and it works great!
- Muslin page option...I ran out of white felt, so I tried using some muslin. The muslin is easier to write personal messages on, which is nice. On the other hand, it also results in a much thinner book, so it all depends on the look you want which one you'd prefer.
(I used a random number generated and counted down the list...skipping over the comments I removed because they were accidental duplicate comments.)
The following winners will get a set of two book ornaments.
