The page isn't quite finished yet - it needs a couple of little tags added to slip under the punched-edge. It's a replica of one of my favourite books... A Visit From Saint Nicholas, by Clement C Moore.
The little book is stuck down to the page, and held closed by a tiny strip of ribbon, tied in a bow. The book is simply bound with a little piece of lace and three tiny bradlets.
Each page of the book is printed on both sides, and is the full 14-verse version of the poem.
I guess I could have made the pages a little more fancy... but for an old 'bird' with mobility problems I reckon I did quite well :)
Please excuse the state of my broken fingernails... but do have a look at the beautiful tablecloth if you can see a bit of it? It's gorgeous embroidery done by my Husbands grandmother.... I'll post a piccie of that a bit later with a question for anyone who knows about stains...
