Turning a book in to a banner

I helped my friend Amy do a little basement clean up a few weeks ago. There was a lot that we gave a way to Goodwill, but there was a lot that had to stay due to sentimental value. I took one of those very items that was destined to go back in to a box under the stairs and turned it in to something she and her family could use each Christmas.

The book is called "Christmas is a time for Giving" It is full of adorable color and b/w pictures. So with her permission I revamped it! I cant wait to give it to her next week! It will go great on hanging from their mantle.
I was easy to do with a little fabric, decoupage and my sewing machine.
