I wanted to say there’s stars on thairs! Get it? Dr Suess! OK, anyway on with the business of the day!
I added these stars to my mantle garland today. They look very pretty and added some glitz to my plain garland. I am really into metallic accenting this Christmas.
See the silver and burgundy ink!
Here’s what I did. First I created this 3-D star with my Gypsy and George and Basic Shapes, and I cut 18 of them.
I choose white paper because I wanted to use some silver Rub and Buff paint I had and I thought white would be best for this.
After cutting them out I scored them using my clear ruler and my bone folder. I don’t have a Score Pal or Martha Stewart score board.
Then I trimmed the tabs on a slant so they wouldn’t stick out when I glued the two stars together.
Next I rubbed some Rub and Buff on my Swirls Cuttlebug folder and ran one side of each star through the Cuttlebug.
Next I used a cranberry or pine ink pad to layer in some more color.
Next I folded the star and tabs and shaped the star
I added glue to all the tabs.
Then press the star flat so that the edges meet and are sealed and if needed clip to hold tight until glue adheres.
And ta-da! Cute huh! From here I punched a small diameter hole, added red ribbon and put them on my mantle garland.
Here they are on the garland.
That’s it for now! I hope you are getting everything done you need to do!
