Hanging Star

Good morning blog friends.  Today I have a very simple hanging star to show you which was made from only two pieces of 6x6 card,  plus the embellishments.

Back of star

I found the simple tutorial  HERE if you are interested.

I used Spellbinders standard circles and lacy circles for the centre. I used a large, bought poinsettia but I pulled it apart and covered it in red rose glitter - I didn't have any true red, but it doesn't look too bad. I disposed of the yellow centre and replaced it with a small rose, both flowers from WOC. I just used some narrow red  to form a hanging  loop.  The joins at the back don't fully meet and  I didn't like the white strip that showed  so I used peel off borders to cover each edge. This way if it was hanging from the Christmas tree and swung round it would still look quite neat from behind. Easy peasy!

Hope your weekend is going well. 

With love from Christine xx

Good Morning Christine,
Love, love, love your project, looks fantastic. Would be great hanging in the window.
I like doing this kind of thing will have a look later.
Looking forward to seeing your "Bag and Those Roses" ..........remember give the petals a good "Mash" to soften them it makes them easier to work.

Hi Christine - this is a great project - and I love the peel-offs down the back - I think I would have put them there even if they weren't hiding a bit of white paper!!! They are a great addition. Will check up on the tutorial - still laugh about the first time you popped the tut. on your blog - I can't help it can I???

Big hugs to you, hope you are both well.
