hymn page crosses!

i found these little paper mache crosses the same day i bought my stars at hobby lobby. i thought they'd be pretty fun to prettify, especially since my husband is now a pastor & we're celebrating our first christmas at our new church! speaking of, even if you don't work at a church these would make awesome 'little something' gifts for your pastor, sunday school teacher, church pianist, etc if you're looking for one more handmade but easy & inexpensive gifts!

-all you need is: a paper mache cross [or other shape], hymn or book pages, plain white school glue & glitter glue
-spread glue on one front side of your cross &h stick the paper to it, smoothing out bubbles gently. let it dry. if you'd like, you can carefully position the paper so that a special song title is centered on the cross [like i did with the 'amazing grace' one]
-once the glue is completely dry, carefully cut around the shape, leaving a little bit of a border. gently tear away the border to leave a jagged edge. careful not to tear it off the cross!
-add glitter glue around the edge of the paper. repeat on the back if you'd like. add a jute loop with hot glue for hanging!
