Thank Your Lucky Chinese Stars!

Purchase #1: Lucky Stars

From Wendy’s Origami on Etsy comes the 25 pack of bright Lucky Stars!Β Many years ago Maru showed me how fold paper Lucky Stars. They are cute and make great decorations however they are really easy to crush so when I saw these premade colorful fabric stars I just had to have them!Β

The stars came in a hot pink organza bag with a little explanation card as to what they are. (The same card is displayed in all three pictures)

As you can see I got a pretty bright batch and they are a lot of fun to photograph! My favorite two would be the bright orange and the light red. πŸ™‚stars3

What do you I use them for? I personally like to keep them in a container or sprinkle them around my workspace for visual interest. :3Β

It was really easy and I had all the ingredients on hand! I also think it tastes way better than the fried rice at the local Chinese buffet. πŸ™‚
