An easy fold up Star Ornament and Celebrate with Tags bundle

We learned how to create this star ornament at a Stampin Up Convention years ago! Orginally made with 12 x 12 paper the star was wow and huge!  

Today I'm creating it to finish much smaller - about 4" from tip to tip, perfect for your tree.

I'll also share a few other easy projects - these will be part of our November Online series (Tuesdays 6-730pm online live and recorded).  We will use the October Paper Pumpkin for that series.  

First the star ornament

Cut a 4 x 4 square

Fold in half, fold in half again and fold “tip to tip”

Measure 3/4” from each edge (your cutting line)

Cut these 3/4” - can you see the 4 lines below? cut here. 

Fold into the triangles into the center (last photo)

Use a glue dot and bring the triangle edges together

Make 2 stars and then adhere these to stars together (I found glue dots easier than the liquid glue)

With a darning needle add some twine, ribbon or metallic thread and hang on your tree. 

The gift card holder (it's a slider) and the tag were made with this super bundle.  It's right at the back of the catalog and I think it's getting missed! The mittens are so cute.  It's in the online store (see the cart), search "celebrate with tags".

If you have questions, would like info on our Tuesday night series, or these projects, you can reach me on MaryKate@MaryKateScott.com 

happy crafting, MaryKate
