Sort of a Wreath?

The other day I showed you my latest wreath creation...

A wreath made from an old bike can see that post HERE :)

Well since I was busy snipping and stamping...I made a few of these little lovelies too.  Sort of like a wreath, but not.

I just stamped words onto book pages and attached them to the covers of some books I had taken apart for another project.  So glad I saved them!  I love the torn "imperfect" edges...adds "character".

Hope everyone is having fun with the Christmas preparations and still feeling "Merry".  I love this time of year :)
