Christmas Card Revealed - Spoiler Alert

My Christmas cards are finally done and some put in the mail yesterday! The inspiration came from a handful of shredded paper.
I had previously used the paper to make book trees, but had so much left over I knew there had to be something I could make with it. The the inspiration hit as I was sitting at my sewing machine and I knew this idea would be great. 
I love them since they combine everything that I love do to. Sewing,recycling,reusing and creating! I also love to read as well and it did bother me some to shred a book, but it was old and not in good condition. It was quite simple to make and sorry I don't have photos of the process, but I do have more photos of the end result.
So cute that it could be framed and used for next Christmas. I also will be offering it in my Etsy shop along with this version that I made yesterday on my lunch hour!
I just love how this turned out and will offer this in my shop as well. It definitely has been a season of trees for me this year. I hope that my cards bring Joy to all that receive them and those who read my blog since they were a joy to create! 


  1. Sweet! I love your Christmas card idea and your prints. Tearing old books apart for projects like yours is like preserving the words of authors, just in other forms. I'm going to try it. Merry Christmas!

  2. How creative!! I would've never thought to do something like that. I love it!
