Old Books Craft Christmas Trees

I must say that these next craft ideas makes me cringe a little bit because I hate damaging books.  But I suppose not all books can or should be kept forever.  This first idea is from Real Simple is just an image on the page, but it’s fairly self-explanatory.  This can also be done with the books closed and stacked largest to smallest.  Covering them in green paper adds to the Christmas tree feel.
