A Crafty Creative Christmas Guest A Law Students Journey

Make sure  you link your Christmas projects here.

Are you ready for another exciting guest? Kitty has such a fun blog where she shares some really cute crafts and she has one for us here today. Welcome Kitty from A Law Students Journey!

Hi everyone! I'm excited to be guest posting today over here at Heather's blog! I'm Kitty from A Law Student's Journey! You may be thinking... reading a blog about a law student sounds boring...but trust me, it is anything but boring! The majority of my blogging is about crafting my way through law school, so its much more creative than one might assume! This month marks one year since I opened my etsy store! (Please feel free to check out my etsy here) In my celebration, I wanted to share a little craft that was my very first etsy sale! It was these book ornaments.
Here is a short tutorial on how to make your own book ornaments!
What you need:
Old book page
Glass (or plastic) ornaments
You need 5 strips, they must be skinny enough to fit inside the ornament you are using.
The shortest should be the diameter of your ornament.
The next two strips should be just a few centimeters longer than the shortest
And the next two just a bit longer than that.
Put a line of glue at the bottom of the shortest strip, on he front and backside.
Sandwich the two middle length pieces on either side (with the ends all lined up on the glue side)
Put a line of glue at the bottom of the two outside strips, then sandwich the two longest strips on either side. You should have a little stack of strips. One side should all be lined up.
Now place the strips in the ornament.
You're going to want to do the exact same thing again! Just push the trips inside the ornament when you are lining up the ends. You don't want the "bubble" part to be on the outside of the ornament. Its going to make the ornament shape within the ornament.
Make sure its all glued tight, then cap it off!
Thanks again for having me over! I'd love for you all to come visit me at A Law Student's Journey to check out my other tutorials as well! (learn how to make Starbucks drinks, make a ring from a quarter, book page flowers, tea cup lamps...all sorts of goodies!)
