I used these video tutorials to make this star. This project was probably the hardest project I've made in the last twelve days, but my tree needed a star.
It probably would have been much easier had I used regular patterned paper instead of cardstock. Cardstock is not so easy to fold :)

I began with a square that was 7" x 7". I realize that my star could have been a bit bigger so if I were to try it again I would probably use a 8" x 8" square.

This little tree makes me quite happy. I love it's non-traditional coloring (my regular tree is traditional). I hope you've enjoyed these last few days with me. 
THANKS!

Today's ornament was inspired by a sweet little baby Jesus I saw. I wanted an ornament to represent that special night. I used a gold sharpie to draw the star and added a rhinestone. I penciled in the quote and then wrote it with black sharpie. Only one more day!

Have a super sweet day.
Stay crafty!

Using the We R Memory Keeper Candy Box Punch Board I created a small ornament for the tree. I used the smallest size which is 7" x 2"

Super sweet little package in the tree. It would be fun to fill them with a little treat and make an advent too.

Only two more days of inspiration left. Hope you're enjoying the journey.

 I have this aqua, glittery washi tape and I knew it would be perfect on the tree. I just ruffled the washi around a cardstock punch out and added a snowflake topper. I finished it off with adhesive pearls.
Only a few more days of inspiration left.

 I just glued three mini sticks together to make a triangle, repeated and then glued them together.
Mini sticks are about half the size of a regular popsicle stick.

 How about another spool ornament. This one is teeny tiny. I added buttons in coordinating colors to the bottom and the top of the spool for a colorful splash. I finished it off by adding star sparkle glitter to the middle of the spool. I will definitely have to do a few more of these for the tree.
SO CUTE!

 Dressing up die cuts with glitter is one of the easiest things you can do to make a new ornament for your tree.
It's coming along nicely. Only six more days to go. I might be making some cards by the end of this 12 days ;)
Have a super fun weekend.
