Book Page JOY Banner for Christmas


My mantle was needing just a little something more this Christmas season to pull it all together. It’s been kind of tricky decorating around a framed in flat screen on the mantle. This bunting is a little reminder to be full of joy this Christmas season. It was very easy to create. You just need a few supplies and about 10 minutes.

Supplies: book pages, scrapbook paper, embellishments, string. glue

Similar to this book page ornament, I used a few dictionary pages from a Goodwill find. The center line was perfect to hep cut lovely triangle out of the bottom of each page.

I used my Cameo to cut out the letters and the tree, but you could easily use a stencil or even free hand.

The stars are wooden, and have been painted yellow and sprinkled with glitter. If I had red buttons I probably would have used them to add ornaments to my trees.

I creased the top and then lined with hot glue before folding the top of the page over the yarn.
It’s holding up really well.

Now just find a place to hang your homemade Christmas touch. I’ve been on quite the Christmas banner roll,  and now have both this and a scrap fabric banner decking my halls.

Anyone else out there decorating around a TV on your mantle…I’d love to see/hear about what you’ve done!

Oh, and it’s officially December! Christmas…22 days and counting :o)

Sharing this Christmas Bunting at several lovely parties around blogland.
