Double Sided Stars



Just wanted to show you a few more stars. 

My favorite one of this group is this sweet little girl, praying for Christmas to come.

These two stars are double sided.  The first one I held together with glue then run a bead of glue on the outside edges.  Then I sprinkled it with glitter.  But I got smarter!  I then tried one glueing it together and using copper foil tape to run around the edges.  It was much easier, alot less messy and took on one half the time!  So for my time, effort & glittery sticky fingers, I would say "try the copper foil first!"

Angie B. of
had a free tutorial on these sweet stars. I wanted to show you a few more of the fun ones I have come up with using her idea. 
(Be sure to stop my Angie's place.  She needs a little warming thoughts sent her way.)
Next are the insides to the Christmas box I had recently completed.  (Of course, the front of the box did not come out in photos) 

I also got the large Christmas ornament done by adding a tassel at the bottom, four longer tassels on the sides and topping that with a red crystal. 
(No photos of that either, sorry)
Busy, Busy, Busy, Me.
I am getting all sorts of projects
"off my plate".
Company just drove in so I must go for now. 
I love your sweet comments and
hope you will stay tuned for the
"Rest of the Story".

Sharon
p.s.  Be SURE to go back one post to see the Cleo necklace I just finished!

Wow! The stars really turning out fabulously! I still haven't started any. You're really getting me inspired! Thanks for sharing.

Also, thanks so much for your kind words over at my place regarding my lost ring. I have a strong feeling it's in this house somewhere - I just have to keep looking and have faith it turns up.

Take care ~

Hi Sharon:
If I start now I might be able to finish a star before Christmas of 2010 : ) I do NOT know how you do all of it!!!
I have an award I am passing on to you, so when you have time : ) come pick it up. Do not answer the 7 questions as it takes up too much time and you have family and lots of Holiday excitement!!!
Please just pick it up and think of it as an early Christmas present : )
I love these stars you have shown us!!!
Big hugs
carole
