Paper Star Lantern

This time of year, when there are far more hours of darkness than light, I think we are all drawn to the warm, comforting glow of candles and twinkle lights. Last week I shared a series of lanterns and lights on Facebook with the intent of making several of the projects myself. The kids and I started with the Paper Star Lanterns. The kids aren't quite finished with theirs yet. They all managed to get to the folded pentagon stage on their own but are now awaiting my help in the assembly process.

It is a relatively easy project in terms of materials and time. The only tricky part is the assembly. Here is a quick run down of the process but for complete directions I will refer you to the site that I used and point out that using a pencil for the lines was not a great idea. You can see the lines through the paper... a light colored marker would have been better.

To see the complete step-by-step tutorial that I followed, visit Happiness is Homemade.

Gingerbread Star Applique

Here is the third applique from the December Applique Blocks Collection.  As always, the Gingerbread Star Applique was designed to fit on a 6" x 6" block, but it can be reduced or enlarged to meet your needs. Since I designed this, I was thinking they would be so cute to reduce and turn into earrings. Of course, you don't need to make them gingerbread cookies, you can use any color you like.
