DIY Stars...use vintage or foreign papers for added interest. I made a bunch with papers I brought back from Slovakia where my grandparents were from and other vintage papers including letters of my grandfather's that I photocopied and aged. See tip under vintage paper folder for how to.
Paper Stars - fairly easy craft that looks really stylish. Used them as tree decorations and simple ornaments, both very effective. I've used music manuscript, book pages, brown paper, wrapping paper, uni notes...loads of things! Music is my favourite.
