Starry Saturday

Thanks to Ruthie B for sharing her creation with us today. Don't you just love the 3D vellum star?? Want to know how to make one?? Well....Ruthie made up this tutorial so you can create your own. :)


3D STAR TUTORIAL

Supplies:

Star Punch
Vellum Cardstock
Fiskars Cutter

Punch the star out and lay it in the cutter as pictured











Next, put the cutting track down and use your bone folder to score from the middle of the star to the top of the point











This is what the star looks like after all points have been scored:












Pinch the points along the fold line to make the star even more 3D:












Voila! A 3D star!











I use a Pop Up Glue Dot in the center of the star to attach it to the card. This also makes it stay 3D even if it goes through the mail.

Wonderful job!! Thanks again for sharing with us.
Have a great rest of your weekend. Everyone going to convention....I'll miss ya!! I know you'll all have an AMAZING time. Now....get back to those swaps. :)
