These star books are fun to make and easy too! Here's 16 that I've made since Friday to accompany gifts and to replace cards. I've opened one of the books up so you can see the finished star. Instructions are on the link below. Make sure that you make 5 4"x4" double-sided squares! Otherwise, it won't be a star.
You can decorate them if you like, but I used fancy Christmas scrapbooking paper that I've had around the house for years, gluing two corresponding sheets together.
