Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Dare I say, these could be backed with red or green felt (cut into a circle) and the star can be used as a drink coaster?! I love versatile craft ideas. I like to be able to put my own spin on something, to use it for something other than its intended use. That's creativity. Also, string these together with a beautiful Christmas ribbon and you have yourself a string of garland.

Where is the save project button!?!???

Hi there, once you're logged in, the Save Project button appears right underneath the project title (just below the star rating). Hope this helps - Julia from FaveCrafts

I think it would look gorgeous in cream edged with gold and white edged with silver, so I'm going to do some

Looks gorgeously simple.I'll have to try it.
