Stars and Butterflies

Remember those wonky squares?  The ones I used to make this bracelet, these earrings, and this bracelet too?  While playing with them, it seemed like I could make stars by putting 5 of them together.

Tada!  It's true.  

On the red star above, I had put together 3 of the 5 squares, and held it up to show my husband.  His response?  "It looks like a butterfly."  Brilliant.  So then I made a couple of butterflies.
These can all be used as pendants.  I picked up some ribbons yesterday to string these on, photograph them with, and send with them when they sell.  Once the Ike rains move through and we have a sunny day, I'll be able to photograph that and list them on Etsy!

Maybe I should several of the stars as Christmas ornaments...

I like those butterflies-- they're a bit different than what you usually see. Good job!

I love the idea of the stars on a little bitty tree!

I agree, the stars would look precious on a tiny little Christmas tree!
