I don’t know if you know but I really don’t like Christmas. I don’t read Christmas reads, I don’t draw attention to it in any way and I won’t share (literally) the Christmas joy. I’m very sorry but I have to stay true to myself! Now I do understand people who get caught up in this festive spirit. Honestly, I was once like that as well, it just lost its shimmer a bit now.
What I really don’t like are all the things you HAVE to do. I’m sure I don’t need to give examples. I put up a tree last year simply because I wanted to see what Poes (the cat) was going to do but she wasn’t even interested. All that effort and then she disappoints me like that, not even pawing once at the Christmas ornaments, and even the lights couldn’t mesmerize her. Nah this year I’m taking it very easy, there isn’t going to be a traditional tree.
Here’s this year’s Christmas tree. All you need is an old book (I got this one at work because it’s not up to date anymore) and a wooden stick..
You cut paper squares of different sizes…
All you need to do next is make a good solid base by taping the stick on a piece of cardboard
And you slide your paper squares over the stick and tadaaa.. my mini-book tree is ready !
So what do you think of my funny mini project? Anyone who’d consider making one as extra decoration? I kind of like the first picture with the stacked open books as well… maybe I could make one like this as well :-). Two Christmas trees this year!!
