Gift wrapping by MyLittleChaletShop

I will wrap the item in plain brown kraft paper with a pink and white ribbon and gift tag. I can optionally add a hand written gift note.

  • Handmade
  • Materials: Books, Chalk paint, Ink, Rustic twine, Decorative flowers

Bring that rustic charm to your home with this farmhouse inspired book stack. These book stacks will look beautiful on a shelf, coffee table, mantel or tray. The perfect decorative sign to add a cosy feel to any room in your home.

They're also thoughtful personalised gifts and so versatile. Ideal for home decor, birthdays, weddings, engagements, anniversaries, baby showers, and new home gifts or even with your company/business name on them. A gorgeous decor piece or gift for any occasion.

I use old, real paperback books to create that vintage/shabby looking book stack. Each book stack is 100% handmade: painted, stamped, wrapped in twine and rustic style ribbon/ burlap and finished with greenery or flowers. This listing is for books that have ONLY THE SPINES AND TOP BOOK OF THE STACK PAINTED, leaving all the sides and pages rustic and authentic. If you wish to have it painted all around on all sides for a clean, flawless white finish please order this listing instead https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/837471757/personalised-book-stack-painted

The books are hand painted in white, using chalk paint to give that distressed effect, wrapped in rustic twine and decorated with a bow and mini decorative flowers. Wording is in typewriter style font. These are recycled books and since only the spines and top are painted, you'll see pages vary in colour from age of the books and they may have slight markings. I believe any imperfection adds character and it will make your books unique and one of a kind.

Please choose the number of books you want for your stack from the drop down menu and your preferred finish/ribbon or if you want a different finish select 'other' in the finish options and please message me with what you want to decorate it with instead. Please write what you want each book to say exactly in the personalisation box in order from top to bottom.

All my book stacks can be customised/personalised with your favourite sayings, quotes, names, dates etc. Please let me know what you want each book to say in order from top to bottom. I can also finish them in your choice of paint colour, ribbon, greenery and flower arrangement and mini decorative stamp designs. Just get in touch with your ideas. I offer many ribbon colours and styles and decorative flowers to complement your home style perfectly.

For example, to say 'home sweet home', order books as follow:
1. home
2. sweet
3. home

Each item is handmade from start to finish and therefore each stack is unique. Books will vary in size and being hand stamped, it will not always be perfectly straight, which rather adds to the character.

Very happy with these beautiful decorative books! I didn't know what to put in the niche of my TV cabinet. I found the perfect decorative touch! A big thank you also for the messages exchanged and the speed of sending. I highly recommend.
(Only downside for me who is from France: customs fees 😕)
But I don't regret giving them 😉

They transformed my shelf from a random assortment of objects (like you might see in a very badly organised charity shop), into an elegant coordinated display!
