* Paper stars

Posted on November 17th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Holiday, Paper Crafts.

My Paper Crane posted a sweet little garland of stars she got. I’ve been wanting to try making some of them myself, so I found these directions and gave it a go using some quilling paper. I was with them through the 2-D parts, but I haven’t deciphered the last jump into the third dimension. Maybe I’ll try an additional set of directions next time. The flat ones are pretty cute, though, and easy. I think I can churn out a whole garland of them in front of the TV.

    I was reading your blog for the idea of the applique. My son and I made some patches using an old t-shirt, skull and cross bones stencil (he’s a ‘tween), and a Clorox bleach pen. They turned out really cool. However, I didn’t want to use a stiff iron on backing, so was looking for something different. Anyway, I’m going to give your suggestion a try. I am also trying to make these stars from this site that I saw yesterday. I am not so far yet, so wish me luck. P.S. Your blog is great! You are quite creative with a no-nonsense approach. I love it!

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
