They’re not really my favorite.
But, they are super popular right now. They are also the subject for this month’s PTI Blog Hop. I found some cute ones by Martha Stewart at TJ Maxx that perfectly matched Aqua Mist and Hawaiian Shores. They were in the shape of little stars, and I thought they were pretty cute.
A friend of ours is having a birthday party for their son, who is turning three. I thought the stars would be super cute (and appropriate) to accompany a 3 year old boy’s birthday gift.
I used my new Birthday Style set from PTI… I just LOVE that little banner at the top. I think this card could be easily adapted to a girly color scheme for a little girl’s birthday. (Not that I have any friends with little girls!!!)
I thought the star sequins were super cute, considering the starred exclamation point at the end of “birthday!” I didn’t care much for the hole in the center, which would normally be used to adhere the sequins to fabric, so I covered them with some stickles. I intended to cover them with some gems, but I couldn’t find any that were small enough.
Thanks for dropping by! I can’t wait to see the rest of the entries for the blog hop.
