Bookshelf Christmas Tree

I realize this photo has been circulating the internet for ages, but even if it's new to just a few of you, it's worth it because...

...what paper crafter among us doesn't have a ton-o-stuff piled on shelves?! I'm thinking it would be a hoot to take a few minutes this weekend to arrange my overloaded bookcase to look like a Christmas tree... someone hold me to that, please!

Photo credit: Apparently the tree was first featured on hoi pippo with credit given to for the concept, but a search proved fruitless... whoever came up with the idea gets my vote for tongue-in-cheek holiday decor.

Facebook Finds
