I was also inspired by bodicea's tute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=268026.0  As I was walking through our school library the other day, I saw a rack of free books.  So I took a couple and decided to try my own book shape.  I made a star for Christmas! It doesn't stand up because of the points on the bottom so I gave it some Christmas string to hang from. I painted the edges with watered down acrylic paint and I added some glitter (which you can't really see in the pic).

This is great! I hadn't even thought of doing a star! I like how the paint really shows up.
