So since the holidays are rolling around the corner, I thought it would be a cute idea to give some ideas for your bookish friends. I really want to do this for my friends because they love books just as much as me.
1) The first one is one that I saw on Instagram is what inspired me to do this post. I thought the post was one thing when it was another, but it’s still a cute idea.
Steps: What you do is wrap 25 holiday and seasonal books with wrapping paper and place on a shelf or wherever you put books. And then you choose one of those books to read on the first of December and every time you finish a book, you pick up another wrapped book. Make sure they are all the same wrapping paper so you have no clue which book is which book is which. Size can’t really be changed, so… We’ll just have to deal.
2) A gift exchange is something so easy but so fun. I have a lot of friends who love to read so what you guys could do is exchange books and love each other’s favorites.
Steps: You go buy a book. Your friends go buy books. Each of you have to wrap it. Meet up and play a game of white elephant or a circle switch thing. How ever you would like to exchange the books. White elephant seems like the funnest and easiest.
3) For decor, you can pile books to make a tree.
Steps: Get some big books and some small books. Take two books of the same height and wrap them in plain brown wrapping paper. This will be the trunk of the tree. Next, stack the books by biggest to smallest; wrapping them with green wrapping paper. Decreasing the width and height as the tree goes up is the prettiest in my opinion, but as long as the height of each book decreases, it works. If you have no clue about what I am talking about, just look at a post right there because it summarizes what I basically mean. Except without the wrapping paper.
4) If you don’t use a book, make a snowman out of them. It is decor and it just means that you don’t have to torment yourself by reading the book again.
Steps: Cut out the shape of a snowman using a book and put it on a solid platform sort of thing; wood, cardboard, etc. Decorate it as you please. If you would like to have it have a scarf, use ribbon.
Hi. Are you studying for finals yet ’cause I am. I’ve been writing my book recently so it will probably be up soon. Like I said in one of my previous post, my book and blog is second to school. If I have time, I will post or write, if I don’t then I won’t.
Love you all ♡
