Angie B. of Hopemore Studio'shad a nice tutorial on this star pattern. (Please stop in to see her lovely creations.) I didn't find it until around 11:30 last night. The next time I looked up it was 5:30 in the morning!
(Would you say I get involved & forget what day it is, let alone the time?)
I have twelve more stars cut out, folded and waiting for me to get back to them.
The red stars are made from a red foil sack I purchased at the dollar store. I had to spray glue a piece of card stock onto the back side before I started to fold it. I don't think it was not strong enough paper to hold over a period of time. (I always want my pieces to last for several years.)
Angie had asked if anyone had a good idea on how to cover up the back of the star. I thought that paper doilies would work great. So I pulled out my gold foil doilies and found that the ones that I have, over 400 of, are way to large so I cut it down to make a ruffle around the star. I then glued another flat star on the back just to finish it off.
This picture is from my Grandfather J's primary reader from 1903. I love the little boys laugh, it just makes me smile each time I see it.
The last one I made is one of my favorites. It is simple, sweet,& dainty. I cut out a flat star to back it to (it also holds the star in shape) and glued the two together. I ran another line of glue around the edge and dipped it in Martha Stewarts copper fine glitter.
(I love glitter! Do you or am I just getting tacky in my old age?) Sparkle, sparkle and more sparkle is my theme, escpecially at Christmas. I have sparkles all over my art room but most importantly
