Christmas Ornaments Class 2

 These stars are the simplest things to make....once you figure out which side to cut them on. I found the tutorial here.
They use a 6x6 inch piece of DSP, we scored every inch and fan folded them. They are then folded to find the center, and stapled in the center. You cut each side from about 1"-1 1/2 " from the center out to the corner. Then glue the sides together to get the star. We used the Tombo Liquid Multi glue and the mini clothes pins to hold the paper together until they were dry.

 The DSP we used was Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty Paper from the Holiday Mini. Once the glue was dry we used glue dots to add Holly Berry Designer Buttons and a little Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding to the center.
 For the hanger we used the crop-a-dile and punched a 3/8" hole in one of the arms of the star. We used 1/8" red taffeta ribbon to make a "faux bow" and another piece of ribbon to tie it together then threaded it through the hole and to be used for a hanger. (Clear as mud?)

This is the other side of the DSP from the picture above.

I think everyone chose this side to use as it is very pretty and impressive!

Stay tuned....more to come!      Sharri
