    Folded Star Ornaments

    One of my traditions each Thanksgiving is to place a little gift bag full of little gifts and an ornament at each seat around the table. This is my ornament this year... It's called Scandanavian Folded Star and is on YouTube... Probably been around for years but I just stumbled on them. These were so much fun to make and they whip out quick. These 7 took me about 2 hours. Once I got the hang of it, it went quick... I used Christmas fabric but my next batch for present toppers for out of state family will be traditional fabrics... These are 3" in size but you can make them any size.

    Lovely little stars..you are a good soul!...my friends and I decided to make these...they aren't as easy as it looks...nimble fingers are needed. We each made one and decided that was enough

    They turned out beautifully. I wouldn't have thought of using white-on-white for them, but that one is my favorite. TFS

    When I was a girl we used to make these with paper and then dip them in wax and sprinkle glitter on them. Haven't seen them in fabric before this.

    A few weeks ago my sisters and I made about 70 of these stars. I had cut and pressed the Christmas fabric before our reunion. We did them in kind of an assembly line fashion while sitting on my sister's porch in northwestern North Carolina looking out on the mountains. The memories will be treasured forever. Anyway, I plan to give a star to each of the guild members at our Christmas party (just have them available in a basket). The people in the guild have helped me so much with my Days for Girls feminine hygiene kits this past year. I have saved some stars out to give to my "Loose Threads" church sewing group too.

    My advice on doing this craft with a group is to have each table of 4 or 5 people have one leader who has been pre-trained and practiced. It would make everything go smoother.

    Rob...This is the perfect craft ornament to do in front of the TV. Once you cut & iron the strips, just sit and fold. That's how I did them. The hubbie got involved and matched up all the different strips I'd prepared for each star. It was really fun... Good luck!

    My local family received their gift bags with ornaments today and loved them. So they were a hit...

    I just finished a sweater and haven't had anything to do at night. This is perfect.

    Thanks again Teen! I jumped in and have had fun making these. Needed Mr. Domestic's directions, but they are easy and fun, and best of all quick!
