Scrap Stars

What started out as these....

Followed by a pile of this....


Became these three beauties!
I was inspired by this blog post that i saw, and knew right away that i had to find me some stars!!! Her project used scrapbook paper....but i did not want to go out and buy bunches of scrapbook paper....
...then it hit me!! I have tons of fabric scraps laying all over this house, why don't i use that instead! Using those would put a small dent in the scraps and i would be able to enjoy some favorite fabrics from past projects again.

As in the project i saw, it was my intent to make these weather proof and hang them on our front door or on the porch somewhere, but they turned out way better than i thought. I might want to enjoy them every day inside my house. Now i just have to decide where to hang them.

I love how your stars turned out! I think fabric would be much easier to work with than the way I made mine - with scrapbook paper. Great idea. :)
