'This book shows you how to make really beautiful window stars out of coloured tissue paper. There are nice clear instructions for twenty-five different stars and when you put them up at the window the effect is lovely. I really enjoyed creating lots of different designs. Some of them I used not just for window decorations but by making smaller ones and putting them between clear plastic I created my own cards to send to people.'
