Christmas Star

Another weekend upon us and I keep forgetting what day it is. I blame my daughter for that as she is arriving from Australia this weekend and she kept saying she would be here on Sunday but of course she'd forgotten that she gains time and she actually arrives tomorrow !! It will be her first christmas in England since 2008

Anyway my post today is to show you another 'snippet' make - this star was made using only a 6 inch by 3 inch piece of paper and some glue. This is the first time I've made one of these stars and it was very easy once I'd worked out which way to line up the strips and where to glue them. I shall make a few more from other paper scraps and hang them together on a string.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Pixies Snippets Playground challenge 'Week 101 snippets' (my 2nd entry)
Dream Valley challenge 'Anything but a card (my 2nd entry)
Papertake Weekly challenge 'Anything goes' (my 5th and final entry)
Divas By Design challenge 'Feeling festive' (my 2nd entry)
Through The Purple Haze challenge 'Christmas makes'

Just to remind you we are having a DT call until 3 January over at Paper Crafting Journey so if you'd like to be a part of our team then check out the details here.

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a great weekend.
