Back In The Classroom With A Twist On An Old Favorite

Yesterday I had the pleasure of teaching a class to some of the patients and their families at the Pottstown Memorial Regional Cancer Center. Not only was a I honored to be asked, and even more excited to maybe offer a creative outlet to people who so desperately need a release from their battle to survive, but I loved getting back into a classroom atmosphere. As all of you know, that’s really how this whole blog (and now business) started…from my love for teaching!

I needed a project good for both men and women, so I turned to my old stand origami Christmas stars. But, as you can see, I put a few new spins on them.

I know you have all seen these more than a few times before, but I also know that all of you love to see new ways to use your favorite projects.

The simple stars that started out as holiday ornaments, have now been made into the perfect gift wrap embellishment (seen above) and the sweetest bunting (see below!). Picture that star spangled banner with your child’s name across…too cute!

Find the step-by-step tutorial here!

Enjoy again,

      Thanks, Terrie!
      And I have to admit! Your idea to put them on a gift box last Christmas was what sparked my “picture perfect wrapping”….Thank you!!! XOXO

    I enjoy your gift wrap with the stars and letters. Thanks for sharing this. Where did you get the letters?

    • Nikki says:

      So happy you like the stars, Tee! I got the letters as a pack just at the craft store. Sometimes their supply is limited. I always keep a pack of white (you get at least one of every letter, and then two or three of the more commonly used letters) on hand. I just paint them with craft paint to match whatever I’m working on!
