My grandma used to make these by the dozen and paint them green or gold and glitter 'em up! She loved to glitter things up. Long line of glitterers. :O)

As someone who upcycles, I should be doing that with magazines. I really love these and I can envision them on your Christmas dining table. Also love seeing your desk (#4).
