Romeo & Juliet

Day 104/365DSC_0805You may remember a couple of sundays ago I posted about making a new series of the ever-popular Starburst Book ornaments; Star Cross’d Lovers Book ornaments.  Well, here they are finished!

DSC_0808 I focused on 4 cover designs, each a bit different.  There is a simple gold pattern (above), a sweet floral (top photo), a more traditional tile-inspired pattern (pictured below) and an organic flora-based pattern (bottom photo).  DSC_0811 This pattern is my favourite, I love the repetition and bold white on red.  It reminds me of fancy kitchen tiles and tea time spent with loved ones.DSC_0821I love the versatility of these little ornaments; they can be displayed closed to show off the fancy paper cover, or you can burst it open to a star to hang.  Since they come as a set of two, you can do one of each.  Or you can give one to your Valentine and see which way they prefer to display it.

See my etsy shop for details.
