ScrapHappy is a group of bloggers using up scraps of anything – no new materials…Anything made of genuine scraps is eligible, and posts come out once a month on the 15th!

The perfect December ScrapHappy post! Everyone should have a Mormor to show her how to make these…
We quite liked using the scrap “Universal Plotting Paper” for star-making…YouTube isn’t a good substitute for a Mormor, but there are some good instructions there!
Ah, you come up with the most delightful scrap happy projects. Thanks from me go out to Mormor and your mormor for the teaching as well as the passing on of making these pretty stars. I have a jade tree about the size of yours…mmm…ideas….
This little Jade Tree was quite surprised to find itself decorated and lighted up…the Hittys like it though. Not too big nor too prickly. In any case we haven’t brought our potted pine tree indoors yet!
It’s wonderful to have Mormor passing her knowledge of fun and beautiful projects to Hittys and humans alike. The stars are picture perfect.
I am so lucky I had a Mormor who taught me to make these stars. I think I have made them every year for probably 50 years! Maybe next year I can teach my littlest human…
sharing the love, blessings to humans and woodens in the Hitty house.
Thank you so much, and we hope you are keeping well up there on the hill, and enjoying the love and blessings of friends and relatives too!
How nice to see a Jade decorated with something so clever! I just lost mine to who knows what after 11 years of having it grow and thrive. I’m so sad, but yours looks great!
Thanks! I hope you will find a new Jade tree to grow and thrive for you! We have been enjoying this one since it came to live with us. The little lights are on a battery so not too heavy.
Oh so lovely…now if i can only figure out the details of star making. Mormor is such a patient mentor to her young charges…..and us!!
Thanks very much! The woven paper stars have been a feature of my Christmas for as long as I can remember! I’d love to teach you some day!
They are delightful! About 20 years ago, I bought a lovely little kit in an airport gift shop- it had a roll of colored paper strips and instructions on how to make a different, tiny origami star. I loved the kit so much that when I flew through the same airport again (months later) I was really happy that the gift shop had one of the kits left. I still have it! You have inspired me to find it and make some of the wee stars!
That sounds really nice – perhaps Mormor and the girls will branch out next year!
