Book Christmas Tree

Morning; hope all is well with you.  So the tree from a book is finished!  Now this isn't my idea i have no idea where the original idea came from but i found my inspiration on my friend Emily’s blog.

So this was a copy of Mansfield Park and took me about an hour and a half to fold the 300+ pages whilst chatting to friends at craft group the other night.  I then sponged with different inks and champagne shimmer paint so it has a gorgeous shimmer.  Once happy with the colour i decorated with some linen thread vintage brads and little off cuts of crumb cake seam binding, and early espresso tulle.  The base pot was made using a little pot that had a previously housed the most gorgeous chocolate mouse.

I am now scouring the local charity shops for paperbacks as i want to make more!
