    Erin, these are so simple, but so pretty! I love them. You could also personalize them for a book lover by using some old text from their favorite books. What a neat gift. Or you could use a wedding invitation for a couple’s first Christmas. So many fun things to make. Pinning to save this, I am inspired by it!

      I agree, Nikki! So many good ideas for this one. It doesn’t have to be a book page…any paper, especially if it’s sentimental would make a lovely gift. Thanks for the pin.

      Awe! Thanks, Michelle! I love the way they turned out and think they could be customized if you want to give them as gifts. Say, a music sheet for a music lover. A wedding invitation for newlyweds. Whatever paper you have could work!

      That’s great! I think I’m going to look for an old book to do more crafts. This time I had to take an old book we didn’t want and take the pages out. Thanks for coming by, Megan!

      That’s awesome! I need to pick up an old book with vintage scrips, so I can have one on hand for future crafts! It’s neutral, so the ornament definitely goes with any decor!

      Thanks, Sherry! I think they are pretty and add the right amount of charm to a tree! How cute would they be with fun scrapbook paper? Or music sheets?

    Erin, I love the addition of glitter to these book page ornaments! It elevates the look of them and adds a chic touch that is quite attractive. They turned out so well! Thanks for the tutorial 🙂

      Thanks so much, Jelica! I love a little sparkle especially this time of year! I think the sparkle on these ornaments is just the right amount! Happy Holidays!
