I used to make these lucky stars back then but not for special someone haha. Just for the fun of it.

I love to make lucky stars very much. I have make many bottles of it and all give to my special frens.

Currently I have two small bottle at home for my husband.

But I am doing the lucky stars another way. I did not tie a knot at the first step.

Hehe. I think he is:-)
Although it is just a two small bottles of the stars, but I have spent quite some time in cutting the strips into 5mm each and using my very best skill to fold it perfectly.

I think the stars really turned lucky lor…because he has got me as his wife..Hehe. (perasan)
