Well this is the second entry that I have ever done.  Hopefully I got it down this time.  I chose my Item randomly by sitting in my bedroom floor and pondering on what tiny little thing I could make and origami stars popped into my head. Then I thought "hmmm how small can I do it." so I cut a strip of paper less then 1/8 inch and there ya go.  Apparently you are supposed to have good luck if you can fill a jar with 999 stars.  Since that is impossible to do in a 1/2 inch jar I made 27 of them, which is 9 + 9 + 9. (HEHE kinda works right?) ANYWHO... Here they is

here's the jar


and 27 outta the jar


The tinniest is around an 1/8


The biggest is 1/2" strips then 1/4" strips and less than and eighth.


Of course after I decided I was gunna do this I googled and G my idea isn't incredibly original but I have'nt found any smaller yet. Grin

I'm just stunned. This is fantastic! And pretty! A pendant made with this bottle would be an instant conversation starter.

How in the universe did you manage to fold those stars so small??? I'm amazed! I've never managed to make a full size one of these look good. Great job.
