I've never been famous for my handmade treasures but this year I am so excited for the holiday season to begin that I've been dreaming up some ways to make the season a bit more unique. I purchased a big pile of Arabic newspapers from the 1920's that I found in an antique store (they're actually Catholic Arabic Newspapers from Lebanon). I am planning to wrap the majority of my gifts in this paper - its so perfect in its imperfection - slightly yellowed with beautiful script that looks like an art form to me. Does anyone know how I could make a lovely flag banner like the one below? It's so whimsical and would be a fun project. Have a lovely weekend!
