Twinkle, Twinkle

     More recycling for Altered Eclectics new challenge which starts today, this time you will have two months to upload your project as we are taking our January break to return on February 1st.
     Just incase you hadn't noticed I love working with magazine straws, it takes a while to make a batch but they can be done a few at a time and stock piled.
     These stars were made after watching a really good video on You Tube that takes you from start to finish.

    The addition of a little glitter on the ridges makes all the difference to them, the silver one is so pretty I shall hang it in my window for Christmas, these pictures don't really do them justice.
     Please pop over to the blog and see all the amazing projects the DT have made, it also well worth browsing through the array of stunning work submitted by our followers, you can't fail to be inspired.
     All that remains for me to say is Seasons Greeting to you and Altered Eclectics will see you again in February.

I would like to enter these stars in the following challenges:
Crimbo Crackers - Anything Christmas Goes   (F)
Star Stampz - Add Some Sparkle   (F)
Jingle Belles - Baby It's Gold Outside   (F)
