Welcome to Day 13 of the 12 Days of Holiday
Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by 
"The Inspiration Crew". 
IT'S THE FINAL DAY!!!
We’re just a group of online crafty
blog friends who love being creative. 
This time we're doing a 12-day event to provide you with 
tons of
Holiday Inspiration.
We're making crafty projects using products we like
and some of us are even offering prizes. 
heck each blog and the information there for what prizes are
being offered and when the 
winners will be announced
on that blog.
At the bottom of this post is a list of all the crafty
ladies participating in this event. Be sure to visit all the
blogs each day for loads of fun Holiday craft ideas.

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!
