I love this idea! I've been trying to figure out what to send my boyfriend (long distance relationship). He lives in CA (I'll be there in March), and sent me a mix CD with a song "California Stars" on it. So, I can tie that into the theme.

I wrote him a bunch of things that I liked about him for xmas, and stuck it in felt fortune cookies. So, I don't want to repeat that with this. Though, he is running out of cookies to open and he said he wanted more. So, maybe I'll also include a little something on the stars.

Thanks for sharing!

I dont have this information myself, but Im sure you could find it somewhere online, but my Korean old best friend said that there were certain numbers of stars to give to mean certain things-not that it really matters unless the person receiving knows that-but she made me something like 1000 once and it was to signify friendship and it was incredible!!  Still one of my very favorite gifts Ive ever been given!!!

I did that a few months ago for my boy as a "just because" kind of thing...
I got about a gazillion pieces of paper, and wrote all sorts of cutesy things on them. Inside jokes and whatnot.
And then I folded them. And put them in a jar. I told him that every time he is sad or something he shoudl open one, and think of me.
And he does. : )
He tapes them to his wall and it makes me feel special.

I got my stars from a store that sells Asian gifts and stationery.  I picked up a pack of rainbow paper strips and the instructions were on the back, I didn't have trouble with the instructions, even though there was no English.  The diagrams were good enough. 

I don't think giving out the name of the store will help, seeing as it is in Brisbane, Australia (and you are probably from the US).  but just for fun, it is called Morning Glory.  Honestly, not kidding.  I have to wonder if the name had any impact on the success of the store.  They were all over the place just a few years ago, now I only know of one still operating.

ohh morning glory is like a world wide store. they have it in the states too. well they used to. it's like a korean gift store haha. you can basically get those strips from anywhere that's an asian gift store. i always just buy the strips. i've made 500 in 3 days. my fingers hurt so much from that.

for my 100th day with my bf i'm going to make 100 stars and write reasons why i <3 him on the strips and then fold them up and put it in a cute jar that those gift stores sell made to put the stars in. it seems stupid because he wont be able to read them but i think it's cuter that way because he'll be tempted to undo them and try to read them all. haha :]
