Let’s Decorate! with The Big Shot

Hangingstarscloseupcm My son Braden yesterday asked me, "When are we going to decorate for Christmas?" It's been very busy around here and I just have not done it yet. The 2 feet of snow that we received over the weekend also reminds him that Christmas is coming. By the way, the weather service is predicting another 2 feet before the end of the week. Aren't we lucky!

I have had the idea for these stars for for a while and today I put them together. I did use retired paper from last year because I was not sure how they would turn out, but I really like them and it was fairly quick to make these 3 stars. They are made from the 5-point star die for The Big Shot. I like the die cutting because the points are cut out so quickly. I did use 10 points for each star and they are folded to the inside and on the top of the point instead of to the backHanging-Stars. I then made a bow from red grosgrain ribbon adhered it to the top with the tails hanging down below.

Check back for a tutorial to make these stars. Click Here for a different idea using the 5 point star.
