How to Make an 8-Pointed Star

I came across an easy pattern to make an 8-pointed star and thought I'd share. You can make them as big or small as you want. They make great pinkeeps, pillows and ornaments.

Take a square piece of paper and fold in half. Fold in half again. Turn diagonally and fold point to point.

Holding the folded end, cut the top diagonally to resemble a diamond shape.

And there you have it.

Faded and Worn

I bought this tattered old quilt at an antique mall a while back with the intention of cutting it up for craft projects. But every time I get out the scissors, I just can't seem to cut it. So, it sits at the foot of my bed...for now.
