“Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Stars are universally beautiful and bright! Without darkness we would never see them glow in the midnight skies. They twinkle in the heavens and lend mystery to the universe. Today we challenged our designers to add this wonderful, easy-to-create shape to their projects.

"Stars, L O V E this theme we have up on the blog today. I created a star box featuring the ever-so-gorgeous Georgia Blues collection. I used my Silhouette for this project (design ID 208391 called Snowflake Box by Suzanne Cannon or if you don't own the machine you can find a template on Pinterest here). I decorated the lid of my box with beautiful die cut elements, pine cones, chipboard pieces and pretty Georgia Blues flowers! I randomly added paper texture paste and snowflake paste for extra texture and then added some paint splatters for the finishing touch. Love how versatile this this star is, use it to add a little gift to the box or as a pretty Christmas ornament." - Tanya

"You can be the moon and still be jealous of stars - Gary Allen. I have always wanted to alter the stars (metaphorically speaking). I have used our beautiful Poetic Rose collection to alter this woven on the wood star. I am absolutely in love with the breathtaking result. This particular project for a change required very less mixed media skills. ~ Mallika"

Adding stars to a layout? It’s a perfect idea that could be created with paper, of course, but also with star shapes Prima makes: metal stars, wood stars, star stencils, etc! Anita chose to cut paper stars, then layer then for a gorgeous memorable layout about her Christmas tree!
