  • Ornament
  • 1. Print out patterns onto orange cardstock. Print second front pattern onto printer paper. Cut out patterns; set aside back pattern.
  • 2. Using straight edge, scoring tool, and pattern as guide, score orange cardstock front piece along dashed lines. Gently fold "mountain" peaks on star points to center; folds will come toward you. Gently fold "valley" peaks from center to opposite edge; folds will point away from you.
  • 3. Do not score printer paper star. Align it with orange cardstock star, rotating shape for best fit. Once stars are aligned, number corresponding sections on both stars from one to 10.
  • 4. Cut numbered sections from printer paper star; use sections as templates to cut pieces from assorted patterned papers. Ink edges of each piece with Pine Needles ink; adhere to corresponding section on orange star using glue stick.
  • 5. Stack and apply four foam squares to center of back star; apply foam square in middle of each point. Apply small adhesive dot at tip of each point.
  • 6. Cut gold floss length for hanging loop; knot ends and press to adhesive at top point. Adhere front and back orange stars together.
  • 7. Punch small star from orange cardstock and adhere to ornament center; coat star with glitter glue and let dry.
  • Tip
  • 1. Using a glue stick to adhere individual pieces of paper gives you a bit more drying time to get them in position, compared with using other types of adhesive.
