Tutorial: Hanging Christmas Star

dec10

Design team member Jo has made a fabulous hanging star to share!

Crafter's Companion Supplies:


Directions:

dec1

Step 1: Cut two circles, one smaller than the other. On the smaller one cover it with design paper (I used some paper from the Snowman and Snowdog Collection). Once covered, pierce a hole through the middle and thread some ribbon through and tie it at the top

Step 2: Using 3d foam, glue the smaller circle onto the larger one.

Step 3: Make a template (mine measures 2 1/2 inches x 2 1/2 inches). Cut this out eight times and cover one side of each with some paper from the collection. You can either double side these with papers or you could leave the one side uncovered.

Step 4: Using a pencil, slightly curve the edges of your eight pieces. This makes it easier to fold into place.

Step 5: Fold those together and add a staple to the bottom.

Step 6: Use Collall Tacky Glue to add some crushed glass to the tips of the paper curls.

Step 7: Place four of your paper curls onto the circles and glue them down.

Step 8: Do the same with the other four.

Step 9: Cut a diecut shape and used Collall 3D glue to place this down. Add Distress ink to the pieces.

Step 10: To finish the star, use the Snowman die (included in Crafter's Inspiration Issue 5 magazine) and spray with some Spray and Sparkle. Then added a few pearls!
