This project would be a wonderful way to use up small bits and pieces of Christmas fabric, as well as using up some buttons. I think that heart shaped ornaments would also be pretty. The ornaments would also work well as package tie-ons or sweet additions to a gift basket.
I think too that if one wanted a flatter, thinner, more primitive look to the stars, one could simply sandwich a cotton batting layer in between them rather than using stuffing. I may try this, because I love the look of these ornaments yet might not want them quite as puffy.
Years ago, I made gift tags using this same concept of ironing a fabric shape (with fusible web) onto a 3x5 file card which was later folded and a hole punched in the corner to add a string. I think there is only one of those tags left and I scanned it to show you:
I also made small gift bags the same way by ironing a fabric shape onto brown lunch bags. In each case (bag and tag) I hot-glued a button to the center of each shape, and I often drew "stitch marks" with a fine point sharpie around each one. I should make more of those this year., as they really were fun to make and turned out very cute.
Have fun with this idea! Small handwork crafts like these ornaments are perfect to work on during the summer ... at the beach, for example.
