Christmas Ornament

Christmas is close and families was to exchange gifts. I've always been in favor of giving personal items, or something they could not otherwise get themselves. When it was decided that we'd exchange Christmas ornament I though hot dog this should be fun.

I started out this some shapes, gluing them together and ended up with this 12 pointed star

A bit of experimenting with printing color on paper.

I decided a single, repeated color and pattern worked best. It was at this point I figures it would look cool lit up so I stated cutting holes.

With very sore fingers I'm half way done.

Construction completed

A small hole in the back allowed it to be lit using an existing light on the tree. I was kind of sad to give it away, but glad they enjoyed it.
