What are you most proud of? After several tries I got this one to work.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is very similar to the ornaments that I made, which I found on youtube.com. There is probably a video for this, or you could follow the instructions for the ornament but do it on the flat rather than a ball.

Very nice. There is a pattern for this - I thought it was called the folded Star but am not sure - always wanted to try it but haven't gotten around to it yet - maybe just maybe you've insipired me to give this one a try. Colors are pretty!

Thanks for letting me know there is a pattern. I hope you give it a try, it really is not difficult and does not take much time.

Great design! The folder star is so versatile for pot pads, place mats, Christmas ornaments. Just change the color scheme and they will fit lovingly into any decor. Thanks

Thank you. I never thought about place mats.

Thank you for sharing. I've always loved this design. I'll give it a go now, seeing yours.

It really only looks difficult. Just take your time and have patience. If things don't stay in place use a bit of glue.

there is a link on the Moda Bakeshop site to create a folded star - It has more folds but the concept is the same: Here is the link: http://www.modabakeshop.com/2011/09/fancy-folded-star-pot-holder.html

Marianna2011, thanks for this info. I have this pattern and want to try Moda's version. It is beautiful and much more complicated than the one I did. I will try it when I have some real quiet thinking time.
