Anything but a card

Hello Crafters.  I hope you all had a lovely weekend and stayed warm.  No snow here in France but it was very wet and cold.

Its my turn to host this weeks dare at Daring Cardmakers.

Every year my daughter's school has a Christmas Fair and as parents we are always asked to contribute. So this gave me an idea!!

I Would like to see
Anything But A Card!!
This could be a gift box, a hanging decoration, scrapbook page, an altered item etc.....
Perhaps you'll make something you could see at a Christmas Fair.  We may be called the Daring Cardmakers, but we don't just make cards.
I made these little star hanging decoration's.  Using the Stampin Up star framlit die.
I made them into little shaker stars.  Which is something I had yet to try. 
I cut out at least 4 stars using two of the dies to make frames so that the little star sequins wouldn't fall out.  I then cut out a further 3 stars, one from a sheet of plastic for the front, another from a piece of decorative paper and a final one for the back of the star.

I then made a little frame using some glitter card and attached a piece of ribbon to hang it from your tree.
There are three different sizes.  All ready for the Marche de Noel for my daughters school.
