Making Ornaments has never been Easier

So like many others, I love to peruse Pinterest for great ideas of projects I can duplicate. A demonstrator by the name of Pam Jorgansen created a star ornament in simple process that I just loved.  So I had to copy it and make it my own.  I believe in giving credit to the original designer so, Thanks Pam.

To create this beautiful star ornament all you have to do is run some pieces of card stock thru your die cutting machine and simply glue it together.  The best part of this is that all the pieces needed are included in the Stitched Star Die set that will be available for purchase in the Holiday Catalog thru Stampin Up on August 4th.  







The star above was the first one I created.  I cut out a 2 inch circle for the backing.  Then cut a blue of the biggest stitched star.  By making a crease down the middle of each point it gives the star stand up form. Place this star to the white circle. Simply use two dimensional's to force the star to stand higher. Then cut out 5 of the twinkle dies and glue the tip and put under the blue in each opening.  I cut these in shimmering silver. Then layered red of the next smaller size star which I set off with more of the twinkles by gluing the tip and tucking under the red star.  When you are cutting you need to cut out ten and have 5 dies so this you need to run thru twice to get all the twinkles you might need.  Added a different shade of blue to the 3rd in size and glue on top of the red. The 4th star is filigree style and I cut this piece out with red glitter paper. Then cut the smaller star an added it to the top.  Don't forget to punch a whole in the top and tie off a piece of ribbon for hanging. Easy peasy.

Change up your card stocks and create different effects.
I will be making these in a variety of colors and designer paper.  Getting ready for the craft fair.
