Jar of wishes!

June 13, 2014

Hello lovelies! hope you are having a good day :) This week i put my crochet projects on hold as i was in a mood to try something different.. while looking for some simple paper crafts, i stumbled upon this origami lucky star tutorial and just looking at them made me want to try it. It's pretty easy to make once you get the hang of it and quite addictive as well.. 

Lucky stars are said to bring good luck and blessings to the person you gift.. you can also fill them in glass jars and it will look lovely on your living room.. there are many colorful paper strips available to make these stars.. i made these from paper strips cut out from color sheets.




You can write some wishes, thoughts or quotes inside these paper strips.. write some things or lists to do in your life and try fulfilling the things given in the star when you open it and see how many you've achieved  in a year. 









Handmade gifts are always way more special as it's made with love to the person you give. I'm going to  make some of these to give them to my friends (in small bottles, maybe). 

Have a fun filled weekend!
