Christmas Star Ornaments

Happy Sunday, everyone! I hope you are having a great day!! I managed to get a bit of shopping done this weekend but not all. So I will be hustling all week to finish! I have a quick and easy project to share today: Christmas star ornaments.
I cut the stars from George and Basic Shapes, two from each paper. I used my Gypsy to attach rectangles to the edges of one side so that I could affix two back to back with glue and make them 3 dimensional. Before I attached the two sides together, I used my Scoreboard to score the edges in the paper and attached fishing line to the inside so they can hang from the tree.


The circles are a Spellbinders Nestabilities die and I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Fired Brick Distress Ink. The sentiments are from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes set:

I am entering these in the Little Scrap Pieces Winter Holiday challenge.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for being loyal followers even when I haven't been able to post much lately! I will be having a blog candy giveaway soon, so stay tuned :)

Like the 3D look of your pretty Star Ornaments. I'd like to see a behind the star scene of the stars unscored with the rectangle piece showing. Also, what size did you make these?

oh my, this made me laugh....first off, I have to tell you I love these ornaments....they are full of rustic charm...but my hubby is driven insane for reasons I do not understand by these star shaped metal decorations on houses. I think I will be making some of these for a few of his Christmas gift tags. lol. I don't understand his reaction to them - unless it's just that they are so prevalent up here it bugs him, but now I'm gonna have some fun. I adore these, my friend, so I hope you don't take this wrong. I even like them on houses (when they look like they belong there anyway) and want a wooden on in the American Flag theme for over my garage door, but it'll never happen. ;)

Hey Lisa, stopping by to see what you have been up to... alot from your past posts!!! I am seeing stars... love them!!! I am going to have to stare at them for awhile and figure out how to score these, or maybe someone (you) could do a little (full length) tutorial on how to make them???!!! hehehe... cuz they are so darn cute!!!!! Also love the 2012 glasses in your latest post... I do New Years glasses every year with my Grandaughters and am gonna have to show these to them, they might be the ones! So cute! Thanks for all the inspiration!
Crafty Holiday Hugs,
Pendra
