Are you one of those amazing people with your tree decorated and all your presents wrapped the first week of December?
Or maybe you haven’t even begun hanging wreaths or stringing lights.
Whichever camp you’re in….there is still plenty of time to make a few whimsical paperback book Christmas trees.
They are really popular this year, too.
How do I know this?
This post from last year is currently my number one, most viewed post, hands down.
The good thing….I wrote a simple and easy to follow tutorial for creating your own amazing paperback book Christmas trees for you to “pin” until you gather your supplies. Which makes this a great craft. No supplies are needed besides an old paperback book!
If you’ve ever thought about trying your hand at these…do it now.
You might even make some for gifts. Last year we made at least twenty.
And the best part is that they cost next to nothing and they are handmade. That’s a win win!
Pop on over to the tutorial and start making your own forest of Christmas trees.

On a Personal Note
Some weeks are pretty ordinary….even for a girl who attempts to live an Extraordinary life. I have enjoyed blessing my friend by doing a few extra things like putting up and decorating her Christmas tree and working with her on a few other festive arrangements. If the sun ever shines again, I’ll try to do a photoshoot and share a few things in an upcoming post.
So tell me…what good things have made your week?
Wishing you an Extraordinary weekend!
