Repurpose your old books into intricate paper decorations with designer maker, Clare Youngs.
Using simple step-by-step instructions and illustrations, Clare shows you how to create these festive paper tassels, which can be hung on painted silver and white twigs for a pretty and unusual festive display.
This project is part of our 24 Days of Advent series and is taken from Book Art by Clare Youngs, published by CICO Books (£12.99).
