Hi Stampin' Friends!
Today at Stampin' Royalty, challenge #200 is: ANYTHING GOES!!!
So, I am sharing a card that I demonstrated last week at my group meeting of my downline and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrators.
This card all started because my downline and I wanted to figure out how to make a 3D paper star.
Making a 3D star is really pretty easy.
Here is a quick tutorial on how to make a 3D paper star:
1. I started by making and printing some star shapes from MDS. Since I already did that work I thought I would just share it with you! Here is a star pattern for you to print out and use.
2. Cut out the star you want to use for your project (I used the star in the lower left hand corner). Trace it onto the card stock or paper of you choice and cut that out.
3. Using a ruler and stylus tool or bone folder, make score lines from each point to each valley. I scored mine on the back side, the side with the pencil marks.
4. Fold your star like this, fold each large point up or to the front of the star.
5. Fold each short score line, the lines inbetween the large points, down.
This step is easily done by lining up and pressing together two large points and creasing the small fold.
6. When all the lines are creased your star is done and should look like this:
I brushed some ink on my star directly from the stamp pad before adhering it to my card. I found putting a mini glue dot on at least 3 of the points is the best way to stick this star down.
Now check out what the other Stampin' Goddesses have made for our "Anything Goes" challenge! And please play along with our challenge, details at the bottom of todays post at Stampin' Royalty.
