The Olympics are going strong and the home team is making us all proud. In honor of these fine athletes, the Stars #2 die for the Big Shot was purchased from Stampin’ Up! to make 3D Stars in red, white & blue of coarse!
To make a 3D star, cut 2 large stars from 2 piece of card stock using the Stars #2 (PN 113461, $15.95) Sizzix die from Stampin’ Up!
Find the center of the Stars and draw the lines as shown below.
Cut slits along the lines, shown above and orientate the stars as shown below.
Turn one star 90° as shown below, align the slights and push the stars together.
How easy is that?
Now for the really cool part! Image these stars made from white vellum card stock (PN 101856, $6.50 for 20 sheets) and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice (PN 101930, $4.75) wouldn't that make a beautiful ornament for a tree? Image the way it would sparkle as the lights reflect off the Iridescent Ice. Okay... I'm off to order some vellum card stock and a VersaMarker (PN 100901, $3.25) so I can make some!!!!Become a Demonstrator" information page.
