Last week was the last Flea Market for the year for us.
Time to get busy with other things....
This NUT CHOPPER was left over from our sale and I just decide
to give it another chance and repurpose it.
Now it's a Christmas item !
I put the small piece of foam packing
back on to cover the top.
It can easily be pinched out to
expose the on and off switch.

Hi my friends,
I have been turning old books into all sorts of things for years.
I never get tired of the surprised faces when
someone looks inside.
It's fun to match a book to someone's own special likes or hobbies.
It can be a great personal gift.
It's one of those 'crafty' items I like to sell at the
Flea Market and Craft Shows.
This version is the easiest of all !
To start you will need a soft cover Calendar or Day Planner.
I like to get mine at the Dollar Tree.
The size that I used was 7'' by 5''
You also need-
An old book approximately 7'' by 5'' with a 3/4'' wide spine.
You will need-
A piece of round elastic double the height of the book,
about 15 ''
You will need-
And you will need-
Scrap paper to cover inside,
I removed the pages carefully.
I saved the lining pages.
The other planner I was working on was this book,
Toward Pleasant Shores....what a lovely thought !
The knot is at the center.
This version here is a bit more complicated.
You can see how I made pockets to slide the calendar inside.
This version here was stitched into the spine of the book.
The easiest way-
I hope you enjoyed this idea and are inspired
to make one for a gift or for yourself.
Thank you so much for visiting!
