Animating stars at end of level?

So, I have a script that displays stars out of 3 at the end of a level.

I want the stars to animate in, kind of like Angry birds, or most popular games nowadays.
I’m displaying the stars using GUI textures.

I create the star Rects at the start of the script, and display them in a texture, using onGUI.

IS there any way to do this? I’ve thought a lot about it, and I’m really confused on how the hell I can do anything with a GUI element created in onGUI, as they don’t have gameobjects attached! I have seen in some older posts people using something like ‘myGUI’ but that gives an error now.

Perhaps modify this for swapping a GUITexture
