I thought I would share a project that I've been working on in my free time... I'm attempting these Christmas ornaments (or they could just be hung around the house) for our family and friends. I am making them for all of Monkey's nursery teachers too. My original inspiration came from this project on Cherry's Jubilee.
I've taken cardboard (I saved all the cardboard backings at my office that come with all our brochures and forms). You could also use cereal boxes. I found star templates online (I actually had them in my 4th of July craft file). I used tracing paper to trace them onto my cardboard, cut them out with an Xacto. Then I ModPodged scrapbook paper on, cut it out with my Xacto after the glue dried. You get the idea... of course, the sky is the limit with these type of crafts... you can make them simple or elaborate. I really think I have about 30 of these things in several different sizes that are in the process of being made.... I also finish them with a coat of ModPodge to help protect it.
