A bit of upcycling today using a well read paperback book from the charity shop and yes I know there are people who throw up their hands in horror at 'defacing' books. I am a lover of books to read but when you can produce something decorative using one which has probably been read many, many times and has done the rounds of the charity shops I feel it is OK. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube giving ideas of things to make by folding book pages and I chose to make a Christmas candle which incorporates a battery tea light. It must be stressed that you MUST NOT in any circumstances use a normal candle tea light otherwise the whole thing could go up in flames with potentially disastrous consequences.
After all the folding I simply added a strip of card around the 'candle' and added a die cut fancy label with gold leaves and a die cut poinsettia.
Leaves - Sizzix dies
Poinsettia - Sue Wilson die set
