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 décor 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
