Another Star Rises


     This weeks project for Creative Expressions is another star made with John Lockwood's paper collection.
     This is made using two sheets of paper. Each pad has 48 double sided sheets, 12 designs in two colour ways with two sheets of each.
     I chose to use one of the lined patterns which made it very easy to cut out ready for glueing. In my haste to make my star I forgot to take lots of pictures so you can find out how to make this Finnish star here.
     It uses six strips per side and you make two sides which weave together for glueing. This is something that would be good to make with children as it's very easy to cut out, easy to assemble and looks amazing.
     I have used two panels from another page in the paper collection mounted on gold mirri card and stuck on to the middle of the star. There is a thin gold thread at the top of one point so it can be hung up.
