For the wonderful topic of Stars, over on the Country View Craft site, I chose a 3D approach with a die.
I began by using some offcuts of Mirri Card and my "Die'sire Star of Wonder Die" and cut out lots of star shapes on my Big Shot die cutting machine. I rubbed the die with a tumbler dryer sheet first to enable it to pop out of the die easily after cutting.
Next, I selected 3 gold stars and glued them onto red tissue paper. Making sure that I lifted them after gluing with matt medium so that they didn't stick to my craft sheet.
I cut off the excess tissue and folded each star down the middle.
I wanted to dangle beads and found an odd earring which just fitted the bill.
Finally I threaded some cotton into the top to hang it.
Here it is dangling in a conifer outside. It was hard to photograph as the wind kept spinning it around.
I hope that you have enjoyed my little project and that it may inspire you to do something similar. Single stars would look nice with acetate behind them and a few hanging in a window would make a nice display, or just attached to a Christmas card.
