WOW! That's awesome! I think they'd look really pretty in a fancy glass jar...like one of those tall squigly ones, or maybe put it in a jar that makes it look like some sort of "star potion". I gotta make me some of these. They look like too much fun!

That's a great walkthough, but won't do what I was thinking.  The walkthrough shows you how to do a custom gradient with custom selected colors.  I wanted Photoshop to take my already selected custom colors (that would match the colors of paper I had) and create a gradient from them that I could adjust (based on how many stars from each color I had - I ran out of some colors of paper since I was recycling instead of buying new).  In short, I wanted to do it backwards of how the walkthough shows to save me the work.  I could have made the gradient, then gone in and customized colors to match the colors of paper I had and adjust the gradient as needed (for quantity) from there, but at that point I was spending more time planning on the computer than I estimated I would to actually do it by hand.  One day, computers will 'get' what we're trying to do and help us get there.  And then Skynet will be born!

Thanks for the link!  I'll definitely be checking out some of their other stuff.

Destroying the whole thing after so many hours of work was a freeing way to finish the project.  It felt great.  Plus, there were other considerations, like storage space.  If I'd glued them down I would have to store that big thing somewhere in my tiny, crowded house.  I have to save that precious space for things like craft supplies!

Whoa!! That's a cool idea for the paper stars--especially if you make it permanent. I always loved making them since I was younger.
