Making a Super Easy Hanging Star/Snowflake

Well, it's super easy if you have a star punch.  I bought the Martha Stewart Arctic Snowflake punch.  The snowflake is about 1 1/4 inch long.  And I had glittery white paper from another mini project (of making mini tree topper angels).  

One of the things I liked about Christmas in Copenhagen were all the stars in the windows of people's homes.  (I also liked all the little elves everywhere (called Nissen)).  


Cut 4 stars with your paper punch and glue the pairs together so that the glitter paper is on the outside.  Then make a cut in the star a little bit past the center.

(Lots of toothpicks lying around in the background.  I think toothpicks are my number 1 tool.)


And insert them into each other and then I made a hanging string by sewing a string into it. 

And then I hung it in the window. 




And to quote Dr. Seuss in The Cat in the Hat:  "And that's not all, no, that's not all."

You can also sew the stars together in a garland.  This was a project in The Dolls House Magazine December 2014 issue.  



Hope you enjoy the rest of your week!
