I really cranked it to get these last 2 Craft Kit of the Month Club cross stitch ornaments done.
I made one of these out in Washington but it was much smaller than this. I realized I bit off more than I could chew after I made 5 points and realized I needed more. I had to back the design paper with plain coloured paper because the backs are all white and I wanted colour to show. This is way, way bigger than I expected it to be but it looks pretty good.
This one surfaced when I was looking for something else. I started it last year but only got as far as gluing the outside gold edging and the silver star. I forgot all about it till it fell out of a stack of paper and I exclaimed, 'OH YEAH!' So I dug into the goodie bag that Monica gave me and used some of those beads for this, then after all the large beads/ornaments were glued in place, I sprinkled all the background with multicoloured seed beads. It's
wicked a little bit 'busy', but kinda cool to look at too.
