Book Page Holiday Banners & Monogram Place Cards

If you follow my blog you know
a. I like to make stuff
b. most of my decorating is done on a budget.
Growing up money was tight.
Wanting something in our house
usually meant you had to
 make it yourself or buy it used.
At the time, 
it didn’t always seem like a good thing:),
but ultimately….
 it gave me the motivation
to be creative and  resourceful
for that I am SO grateful!
I truly enjoy re-purposing things
making something pretty out of something ordinary.
Here are my next two
Recycled Christmas Projects
8. Book Page Holiday Banner
9. Monogram Book Page Place Cards

 These are pages from a vintage french book,
that I just sent through the printer, cut and laced with jute.
Banners are everywhere this holiday season
but I have to say my favorite inspiration for this project
came from Ella Claire.
Kristen is super creative and writes a beautiful
blog, you must check it out:).

I sent the same book pages through the printer
cut the detail in the bottom.


The table runner was a piece of driftwood
that I found at the beach after
Hurricane Sandy.
