Vintage Sheet Music Star

I wanted to delve back into my vintage sheet music stash for some new projects. This is the first one I've finished. Start with a plain paper mache star (I got mine at Michael's):

Decoupage sheet music onto star in sections, using adhesive (I used Mod Podge). I found this step to be more difficult than I expected. I was working with very old paper, which tore easily. Also, making the sheet music work on the different surfaces of the star was a challenge. For my first effort, I thought it came out okay, but I would probably apply the paper differently if I did another one. Then I inked the edges, and used a glue gun to apply vintage millinery flowers and an old sparkly button. And here's the result!

I'm not sure why, but lately I'm really into this color combination -- this bright blue mixed with vintage paper. Love it!

Here's the star hanging in my foyer:

Not bad for a first attempt..... What else can I cover with sheet music???? Hmmmm.
