This is one of the projects we made at our monthly stamping class last week. You can either use it as an ornament or a tag for a gift. It was very easy to make and didn’t take long at all.
To make the star I used a set of new dies that are in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019 Holiday Catalog called Stitched Stars. These dies have a matching stamp set called So Many Stars and you can save 10% by purchasing them in a Bundle. I didn’t use the stamp set on this project but we did use it on another that I will show you in the near future. It is appropriately called So Many Stars because the stamp set has 21 stamps and the die set has 23 dies!
I first cut a large star using Night Of Navy cardstock. Then I scored it five times as in the picture below. I drew the lines so you could see where to score easier. Then you just fold it on the score lines with the points being a mountain fold and in-between the points being a valley fold. This gives it a 3D look.
After I made the star I cut out the swirl using another one of the dies included in the Stitched Star set and Copper Foil Sheets. When you cut this out, it also cuts out various sizes of stars which I saved to add to the project. I adhered the swirl to a circle I cut out using the Stitched Shapes Dies. Then I mounted the Night Of Navy star using three Black Dimensionals on top of each other. I was so excited to see these in the Holiday Catalog. Sometimes the white Dimensionals show so the black are great.
Lastly I added a piece of White Baker’s Twine.
This is terrific, Susan! As you said – perfect as a fancy tag, or an ornament. Adding the swirl & extra stars is a great touch 🙂
This is awesome, Susan. I love that you can use it as an ornament or a tag. And it doesn’t have to be for the holidays. Great project. (The swirl and stars do add so much.)
