Have you decorated your flat festive already? I may be the last human being on earth discovering the magic of paper bag stars. They are simple to make and incredible pretty! Just in case there are still some of you out there, who also never made one before, here is the fast and easy instruction:
8 paper bags, 2 cardboard paper strips (as long as the paper bags, app. 0,5 cm wide), a glue-stick, scissors, some ribbon for hanging, a hole puncher.
Place a bag on the table with the opening facing you. Apply glue centered from top to the bottom and from left to right along the bottom of the bag (in “T” shape). Repeat this step until all eight bags are glued on.
Cut the right and the left side of the bag to a point, to create the star pointers.
Add slits, curves or triangles to the side as you like.
Then the cardboard paper strips are used: Apply glue on each strip, place it at the center of the paper bags and press firmly. Proceed the same way on the backside. Round off the overlapping ends of the strips with a scissor.
Punch a hole in the end of the strips (at the triangle-shaped end, as hole for the ribbon).
Unfold your star and be happy :).
Have a beautiful week!

I hope everyone of you is celebrating a wonderful Easter Monday! It’s perfect to start into a fresh month with two short working weeks in a row! Like every new month, I show you my Monthly Favs. Here they are…
I wish you a perfect start into the fresh month. May it be more sunshine and less stormy-cold. April weather just isn’t predictable. But that’s just like life, isn’t it ;)?

I will not move until June, but already I am dreaming about decorating my new rooms in Hamburg. Those following rooms are true inspirations! … I guess I have to look out for a loft or an old industrial building ;).
