Ornamental Stars

October 9, 2014

tree-ornamentI decided to have a play with the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and the Star Framelit Dies to create some ornaments for my Christmas Tree this year.  I cut Brushed Gold card with the largest Star Framelit and the second smallest Star Framelit.  I stamped the large star onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut them out using the matching framelit.  I also stamped the smallest star onto Whisper White card using Cherry Cobbler ink and cut it out using the matching framelit.  I stacked one stamped star onto the largest Brushed Gold star using dimensionals.  I kept the dimensionals to the centre of the star shape, so that they wouldn’t show to easily.  The for second stamped star, I cut a small hole in the centre, scored and folded the star and then glued the centre back together using a Hot Glue Gun.  I attached this star to the other stars using a couple of dimensionals in the centre and Glue dots between the points of the star.Tree-ornament-2  I attached the smaller Brushed Gold star to the centre, this time I used Hot Glue to hold it in place and lastly attached the smallest stamped star.   I repeated the same steps to make another star.  I attached a folded length of Baked Brown Sugar thick Baker’s Twine to the centre of the back of one of the stars using Hot Glue.  To keep the Twine in place and also to make sure that the points of the two stars met, I used Glue Dots on the points of the two large Brushed Gold stars.  I tied a knot in the Baker’s Twine to create a nice loop to hang the ornament from my tree.

I created the smaller star ornament by stamping the medium star from the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and using smaller framelits to cut the Brushed Gold card.

I think I might add some Basic Rhinestones to the centre of the small stars just to add a little Christmas bling.

They look rather pretty if I do say so myself.  I think that I will be making more of these with my Grandchildren to decorate our tree this year.

Bye for now,
