More Girl Scout thank you jars

These jars are "Star Jars". I made three - one for my unit leader, Bonnie, who got me involved in the joys (and the headaches! LOL!) of Girl Scout Leadership - and a great friend! One for a fellow leader - Barbara for always being supportive and full of helpful ideas - and also a great friend! And the third for Susan (a Girl Scout recruiter from the Worcester office) for keeping us in the know with all the Girl Scout changes and being supportive like no other for our unit. I folded pieces of paper (approx 150 per jar!!) into stars. I got the idea from facebook - via Kaboose.com

How to fold an origami star
Here is a video of someone folding an origami star www.foldastar.com

Was a lot of work but so worth it to see their surprise. The theory is that when you are having a bad day - you open a star for a nice message.
