Gift Baubles

Hi everyone, I hope you all have had a nice relaxing time over Christmas. We have had a wonderful time. I received some terrific goodies. One present was a Just Rite Stampers set which I can't wait to play with. Will hopefully get to use them today as I need cards to go with this little Christmas baubles I have made. I have made these baubles as a little gift for my best friends from school. We are all catching up today with all the families for a drink and chat.

I have used some of the wonderful papers that Thearica from Pigtales and Quilts. This paper is a little thicker so perfect for the job. I cut out a star shape and then scored the lines. Then folded the along all the scored lines. At the tip of each point I punched two holes so the thread could pass through the pull the star shape up into the bauble.

I have added lollies and a little something special for each of them.
