Thanksgiving is in just a few short hours and I suppose that means I'm late, by retail store standards, getting into the Christmas spirit. The fun thing about working at a children's library is decorating for each season and the accompanying holidays. We haven't deecorated for Christmas yet, but we've been preparing...with discarded books! I'm sure you can find this tutorial elsewhere on the Internet, but I can guarantee you that their photos won't have that fuzzy vintage look that invokes feelings of nostalgia from Christmases past.
Here is it folks, the Christmas Tree Book:
Fold the page over so that the top edge is even with the spine of the book.
Fold page again so that the first folded edge is even with spine.
Fold bottom corner of page even with bottom edge of the book and tuck the corner inside of the triangle.
*Note: I made my tree out of four separate sections of 16 pages and glued the sections together. You can make your tree with as many or as few sections/pages as you like for slightly different looks. It's fun to try with different size books too!
