Good News!

Seeing Stars!

I have been following the directions for making
Folded German Paper Stars
from my friend LDH
blog. (Click to go to her wonderful video tutorial)
I made several dozens of them  from the shiney
add sections of the newspaper to give to the
folks at church along with our annual
Christmas Card.
I wanted to make some for a sweet friend
but wanted them to be a little more special
so I dug out an old damaged hymnal
that I have been hanging on to...

tore out some of the Christmas Carols...

and folded a dozen stars from the pages.

I punched out a little hole to thread a hanger through
made from vintage 'Cloisonne Needlepoint Thread',
dipped them into melted wax and sprinkled on some
crystal glitter for sparkle!

Now they are on their way to their new home!
I hope she gets them before Christmas to put on her tree!

"We have seen His star in the East and have come to worship Him."
Matthew 2:2
