Christmas fair and christmas stars


Yesterday I attended my first ever Christmas fair. Even though it was crowded I wasn’t happy with the sale.  I was a little late signing up so I ended up with a tiny table in the corner. But I have learned my lesson and will be signing up earlier next time.


When I still thought I would be at a normal size table I decided I needed to make some Christmas related products. I’m not a very Christmassy person and its especially hard to get in the mood before December. But then I saw a picture of a nice folded paper star and decided to have a go at that. My first attempt was in fabric and it was ok, but extremely time consuming and I don’t think anyone would pay for that time so I decided to go with paper aswell. I bought some scrapping paper that had print on both sides, cut out a crazy amount of strips and started folding according to this tutorial.


I decided to drop the 3D effect and not fold part three of the tutorial. I really liked the end result, and so did the people in the fair because it was without doubt my most selling item.

Suzanne, how exciting that you did a fair! Sales must have been pretty good as you've already decided to go back again. Your stars are so pretty...like little patchworks. Warm Hugs,

Love these Christmas stars! Thanks for sharing the link to the tutorial. Having them flat instead of 3D will help them stay crisp and nice looking through multiple years of storage.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind comment.
