Holiday Paper Projects

I tend to keep all my old magazines, sometimes going back to the pages I marked as good gift ideas, fun home decor ideas, or places I want to see.  This habit of keeping the magazines drives my husband CRAZY.  I admit, I should get rid of some (okay most) of them, and often do by donating to doctor offices, friends, etc.  The thing is...I keep getting new magazines!  You can imagine my thrill when I came across the make-your-own-gift-bows DIY idea from Whole Living.  Just look how well they turn out:

You can also check in on one of my favorite sites, Maggie Makes, for other fun ideas, such as this paper ornament made from book pages.

Happy crafting!
