Handmade Gift Exchange

As some of you may have figured out, I am addicted to reading blogs, craft, photography, name it...I like reading it. Hi my name is Christy and I am a blogaholic.

During one of my many blog exploration trips I came across Linda and her Blog Craftaholics Anonymous, she has a ton of great posts to read and I was there for quite some time. Well...the day I was there she happened to post about the Handmade Gift Exchange for this year, I was jazzed to find this in time and signed up. We were supposed to create something to send to another Craftaholics Anonymous I did! 

I made a few paper star ornaments that I learned about at House Revival. I changed the paper...because I didn't have a old book to tear up and I wanted them to be all glossy...I used photo paper and a little glitter for bling. I am thinking I need to make more for my tree. 

I hope my Exchange partner likes them! 

I also included one of my felt flower pins that I failed to take a picture of...hopefully my partner will post about it. 

I really liked the more complicated star (upper left) I should have taken a side view photo it was really cool. Oh time! 

On to some birthday planning...stay tuned for a Birthday planning post soon...Megan will be 7 on Sunday and we are doing a all purple party with cupcakes! Yumm!



  1. These turned out really beautiful! A lucky partner you have :)

  2. Cute, love them! thanks for your comment on the apron. You should definitely make one!

  3. I love your finnish paper stars. They are so pretty!

  4. Your stars are awesome -- I'm so glad you liked the tutorials! How did you do the one in the middle?

  5. Hi Amanda,

    I'll have to do a tutorial on that one...hard to explain...but its really your original star with only one and the middle piece looped on the top and bottom...did that make any since at all?

    Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower!

  6. These are gorgeous stars. I'm going to give them a shot. Thanks for the referral and inspiration.

  7. Christy,
