Vintage Ornaments

Christmas ornaments made out of old Readers Digest condensed books, top one triangle fold, next page fold in half and half again until end of book. Triangle shape ones just fold every page in triangle until end of book, adhere last two pages together, drop twine or ribbon down the middle and make knot at bottom so it will not pull through. Added a junque bow at top and a large pearl at bottom. Junque bows, various ribbons, twine,white tulle. Make as full as you like but not over power the ornament. Wreath from coffee filters, with pinecones added and sparkle snowflakes, etc as you like, oh, and lollies made out of papers with snowflake glued on top. Use Martha Stewart scissors for various inside poms or centers. Enjoy!
