Paper star ornament!!

 Morning Peeps!!

How are you all this fine boxing day?! I am still full to the brim of yesterday's yummy food!!

Yesterday while Little Mo and Daddy were doing ' boys stuff ' investigating Mo's new golf clubs and bag I decided to have a little bloggy womble and play with paper!!
I just had to have a good play with the gorgeous funky freebie Anice made for this months Get Funky Thank you challenge, its my day to post on the challenge blog with some other makes tomorrow but I just had to share this little decoration today.

The tutorial for this paper star decoration is here on Dawn's Stamping blog. I love Dawn, she is so cheery and bubbly and makes really superb tutorial video's (...tutorials have to be easy to follow for a noodle brain like me!!!) 
I love the surprise of this little paper star and the way it starts off as a teeny 1.5 inch square when its all folded up!! I love it!!

I used a scrap of paper from my Funky hand paper folder to make the little 1.5" cover and one of the stamps in my SU pennants stamp set. I love this for a christmas present thank you! everyone still has their tree's up so it will be a lovely add on to my mum's tree later when we give it to her!! and because it is made with such a bright, cheery paper she can hang it anywhere once the tree comes down.

It doesn't stay that teeny of course!! it pops out into this beautiful decoration below.....

I added a little epoxy button to my organza ribbon. It is what slides up and down to hold the star teeny and then formed, go peek at Dawn's video and have a go yourself because they totally rock!! very relaxing for a boxing day make too!!! and of course if you use the funky freebie you can come play along in the challenge with us over on Get Funky!!!

Cuppa and sausage bap time for me now!!!! I will be back tomorrow with my Get Funky makes!!
