Crate Paper | Star Decor

Christmas is right around the corner and it's time to get those decorations up!  If you're looking for some last minute ideas to add to your Christmas decor this year, then check out this fun, rustic Star created with the Crate Paper Snow & Cocoa collection and We R Memory Keepers Ruler Studio.


I adjusted the ruler to a basic star shape and once I had it the way I wanted it, I added a couple of pop dots to some of the joints to secure the shape. I thought it would be fun to use some of the tags/cards from the Ephemera Pack to create a banner across the star shape. Some of the tags/cards already had a hole in the top, and I used my single hole punch to add holes to the other ones.


I wanted the star d├ęcor to have a rustic, hand-made look, so I grabbed some twine that I had on hand to string the tags/cards. I placed the twine through the holes on the tags/cards and then tied it off on each end of the star shape. Then I cut some extra twine and tied two bows and secured them on the ends of the banner.


The tags/cards already had some cute images on them, but I wanted to add a bit more embellishing. I cut 5 star shapes from the Snow & Cocoa 6x6 Paper Pad and machine stitched down the center of each one, before adding them to the Ephemera pieces. I also added a few stickers and some of the cute Gold sequins from the Jar Pockets pack.



This rustic Star would look great hanging in a special spot or you could also stand it on a shelf or your fireplace mantle. It’s also a quick and easy project, that is perfect for adding that hand-made look to your holiday!
