Paper Star Lantern

Hello everyone.
Nice to be back after a short blog break :-)
Hope you are all happy and well!
Today I thought I'd show you this paper star I have made for Christmas.
I will not be using it as a lantern though,
only as a decor element in our living room.
Love this vintage Santa image, and have used it on
christmas cards too :)
It was such a fun project to do, and easy as well.
I used a template found here.
I enlarged it a bit, so I printed the cone-shapes on
5 sheets of A4 watercolor paper for a nice texture.
The words are from a Norwegian christmas song.
Materials used:
5 sheets A4 Watercolor Paper
Punched stars, snowflakes and leaves
Seam binding, Cheesecloth and Pearls
Snowflake and a Wood Frame
White crackle Paint and Glitter Snow
The Santa image was found online.
Thanks for stopping by.
Have a lovely week!
See you :)
♥ Hugs, Inger

I so needed it, as I have lost my mojo - hopefully it will return later today. may I ask - how did you attach the frame to the there isnt a flat piece to glue? Did you use silicone glue?

Your star took my breath away. It is so BEAUTIFUL!!!! I really love coming here. I grew up with a neighbor lady that came from Germany and she had this kind of things around her house. So Please don't stop creating. I am in Love.

Jeg er lige blevet din "følger" og sad og spolede ned for at nyde alle de skønne ting du laver, men denne julestjerne slår alt, sjældent har jeg set noget så "rent og smukt" jeg elsker hvid julepynt. knus morkaren.
