Christmas decorations...

The angel was made by a very talented artist in the village where I work.  She's a matchbox angel... A matchbox sandwiched between shiny card.. I think she's gorgeous and fun. Wish she had been my idea.... The star was made by me... a school project that we did with the children at school... it's made from 4 star shapes, painted then each star folded in half and then the 4 stars stuck together to make the one. Then decorated with glitter gel.. Fiddly to make but very effective....over the last two weeks I have helped make hundreds of these stars... Simple, fiddly, effective... the kids had fun....

Like the angle - her halo of hair is very cute. I will definitely try the star with the kids.

Your star is like my felt ball ornaments, but instead of paper I used felt and instead of glue, I sewed them together. I made a star for the top of the tree like this. Hm. I just realized I could have made a cut out, like this star. Pretty
