I can't tell you how many people ask how I got the star inside the ornament. It was really simple--I just took off the topper, curled the arms of the star, and then popped it in. With a pencil I carefully uncurled the star and voila. The star was die cut using the Stars #2 die from Candy Cane designer series paper. The coordinating button is from the Holiday Mini Catalog. If you have not bought these big buttons, I say "get some, they are super fabulous." Another great must have item from the mini is the Silver Tinsel--it is very easy to work with and adds a great "wow" to your projects. Check back for more Candy Cane ornaments over the next few days.
