Star ornaments for the tree

 Since I received this beautiful Christmas star ornament from Daryl Clapham. I have been working on a CASE (copy and share everything).
I have worked out the basics and am now making a few to give as gifts or as decorations.
 Here is my first one stamped in Poppy Parade ink - I have stamped the Contempo Christmas tree, cut it out with my sharp snips and pasted it on a piece of square embossed cardstock and the ribbon is Calypso coral ruffled. I think it complements it nicely.
 Here's the other side with the words and some snow flakes.
And here is the star ornament opened.
 Its made with five squares of patterned paper. Each one is only 3 inches square and you need some ribbon and a bead with a large hole or a ring like I have used here.
 Here it is in Concord crush stitched ribbon, patterned paper and ink.
 I mixed up the patterned paper squares to get a more decorative star ... if you have lots of christmas patterned paper you could decorate a whole tree.
