Obsessed with lucky stars

New obsession

Anyone who knows me knows that I tend to get carried away with things. There were the sock monkies, the mosaics, the glass light boxes, the fabric origami boxes, the stamped charms from pop cans, the stained glass, the scrapbooking swaps, the font collecting (I have over 20,000 fonts), the recycled plastic bag lunch bags -- you get the idea.

So I was in a new Dollar Store the other day  (my love of dollar stores is another story) and spotted these packages of paper strips to make lucky stars. I have never made these before,  but the instructions were printed right on the package. . . so I gave it a try. . .

OMG -- I can't stop making them! -- and it's becoming a bit embarrassing. I finished folding the 2 packages I bought initially and went back for a few (six) more packages.

Anyone else love to fold these? I've now filled a vase with shimmery pastel coloured ones, attached a few of the bright metallic ones to some jump rings to make a chain and am madly trying to figure out what to do with the rest of them -- ideas?!? Anyone?
