Global Design Project #GDP015

I am playing along this week with the Global Design Project #GDP015. This week they are celebrating!

I decided to create a home decor item that could be used for either Christmas or a festive New Year's Eve party. 

Believe it or not, this little project took under 30 minutes to complete. I think it is perfect for either using as a decorative accent for your Christmas or New Year's Eve celebration, or you could give it as a gift. I love how it will work for all of those things! The frame measures 6x6 with a 4x4 opening and was included in a past Paper Pumpkin kit. I took the glass out for this project. 

Do a search on youtube for Stampin Up 3-D star and you will find several videos showing how to make this star. However, most of the time, the bottom layer you can see on my project is turned around where you will have points on both sides. See the star ornament in this post. That ornament will hang from a tree. I "nested" the 2 pieces of the star for this project. I used 2 pieces of 3x3 Winter Wonderland Specialty DSP to make the star. (It is on sale right now and on the retiring list)

I just love this project! So simple, so elegant. I used the star garland for staging purposes for my photos, but like it so well I will use it on my mantle exactly the same way.
