i made 7 tiny book tree ornaments for a swap partner; the covert is card board, textured with gesso then painted with acrylic, and lettraset lettering for shortened versions of the book titles (they are abbreviations for the harry potter titles, but i wanted the nerdy-ness to be less obvious; this way they should be monogrammed or anything..) The pages are just cut from an old book, sewn in long stitch with Perle embroidery thread for a bit of sparkle! And the hanging thread is made from the same
The books have 1-3 signatures, depending on how thick the book it represents is
The inside of each covet is coloured with ink, just to stop it being glaring write
