I'm just loving these five point stars.
1.Trace star onto paper, cut out.
I apologize in advance for some of the dark pictures, did I mention my workspace is in a poorly lit basement?? Don't forget you can click on the pictures to enlarge them.
Here is a list of supplies I used:
-heavy weight patterned paper
-pencil, scissors, ruler, bone folder, foam brush, white glue
-hot glue gun
-stamps (I used an acrylic Christmas set from Art Warehouse)
-Mod Podge or gel medium
-Crop-a-Dile eyelet setter and an eyelet
-rub-on adhesive (I use Design Adhesives-Ornate Border)
-vintage image of child( I love using images from Shabby Chic Papirskatter)
2.On backside, use template to mark center of the star, with a ruler mark all lines to star points outside and inside (if you have a tool to score paper this works to, I really like Scor-Pal). Fold according to template directions.
3. Adjust folds into a desirable shape, star will be flimsy at this point. On backside, fill center of star with a good amount of hot glue to hold the desired shape, let cool.
4. Ink edges and folds to give an aged look.5. Stamp images onto paper . I have a large stash of old readers digest, I like the discolored edges so I use the margins to stamp on. Cut into strips. Adhere with Mod Podge. Clip ends.
6. Set eyelet if you want to hang star. (I could have done this after step 4, but forgot)
7. Cut out rub-on adhesive to fit desired area, peel backing, place on star and rub. Peel back to expose adhesive then apply glitter.8. Cut silhouette of child's image, add wings or other embellishments (I used half of a snowflake die cut and inked it). With white liquid glue adhere image to star and let dry.
Success!!! At this point you can add other embellishments you have on hand to dress it up even more.
I'm still at a loss on how to make the backside look good, so if you come up with any good ideas please share!
