Star Books / Star Ornaments
Is it a book? Is it an ornament? Well, it’s both! In this fun family workshop, we’ll make several of these star books in two and a half hours, and take home a kit to make more! It’s not only a fun afternoon for family, it also can continue at home. The instructions are easy and simple and are included with the kit.
These little books can have ‘secret’ messages written in them, and can also be opened up and secured by a bead to hang on a tree, a lamp or in the window. We’ll use a variety of papers for the pages, different beads and narrow ribbons, and discover several different ways to cover these charming little books. Great for teacher gifts, secret pals, and just to keep!
