I've finally done it! My pages for the Christmas ABC Book Swap are complete! I am so late with them, and silly me, I even took on another letter a while back - before my first set of pages was complete. I will never overcommit again. Riiigghhttt.
My first letter was W. I was inspired by a wreath with felt holly leaves that I had made, and thought that I would attempt to replicate that general idea. Here's what I came up with:

On the front, there's a wreath in a window with a winter scene in it. The background is wrapping paper. On the back, I printed out various Christmas carols with W's in them - We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Joy to the World, and We Three Kings to name a few. I then stamped the three wise men on it.
My second set of pages were for the letter F.

For the front, I made figgy puddings out of felt, and adhered them to what I'm calling fancy felt (it's got a pretty design in it). The back is fabric with recipes for fruit cake ironed on to it. I sewed the two together, and voila! A little plain compared to the W pages, but I'm still pleased with how they turned out. I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with for their pages.

Both pages are just right, Wendy! You always come up with such clever ideas!
