Clever idea

What's so clever about this you may wonder, just a tiny little square ornament, not very special at all.... Well, move the bead and.... tadah...

Suddenly your little square has become a star shaped 3D ornament, clever or what?
You can find out how to do these here

I decided I am going to make these a part of my Christmas table,a little gift for each guest:

Here is another version, made out of 2 sided paper:

Finally, here is a fancier version, using a Martha Stewart punch around the page punch set:

I think I actually prefer the simpler versions...

Beware, these are addictive... just as well as I am making 12 of them for my Christmas guests...

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
