I found two of these Christmas ornaments at our local thrift store before Christmas for only 50¢. I knew I was planning on a fun winter themed mantel, so here is your tease...
Christmas ornament

I made a pattern from the Christmas paper to the songbook page
Now my Christmas ornament is a winter Songbird!
