~ *I am awarding Teri Calia FIRST PRIZE for the most creative star ornaments! * ~
Teri sent me an E-mail, describing how she made these cute, cute ornaments!! --
"Per your request, here are some instructions for the blog:
I hope my ornaments are star shaped enough, because I couldn't resist making them into kitties. I was inspired by vintage chenille ornaments. They were soooo easy to make! I bent bumpy chenille stems (pipe cleaners) into star shapes. Then I cut cat heads from some Victorian scrap. I decorated the cat heads with Dresden crowns and silk ribbon and glued them onto the stars. Then I bent the bottom "points" up for feet and added a piece of Merry Christmas ribbon as a banner. I finished them off with thin wire for hanging. Thanks for hosting, Lenna! I really enjoy your swaps because they are so organized and have wonderful themes that really spark my imagination.
xo, Teri "
*I will be sending Teri a delicious assortment of collage goodies for her to have fun with, when I return her swaps to her next week : ) Visit Teri's blog: Artistic Catnip to see more of her awesome art. She is a very talented illustrator and mixed media artist.
Wow, this is last very last post of uploads from the Star Ornament swap! If I have forgotten to add a link to your own blog where you have showcased your stars - just send me an E-mail and let me know -I'll edit the post & add the address. Same if I forgot instructions.
Now, I will really get busy and work on the physical swapping out of the ornaments. Thanks for your patience, and I will keep you updated as to when the swap is complete/sent home to participants! Thanks for all your lovely comments, too ~ Lenna
