We had such a great time at our 2nd Wednesday Club last night. These are the Patriotic Stars we made using the Close To My Heart My Creations Star and various red, white and blue papers, ribbons, and embellishments.

We used a few tricks and tools to make this easier.
  • Close To My Heart has published a template to cut the striped pieces to cover the star. (Find it under Ideas & Inspiration on .)
  • The blue star, the banner, and the letters were cut on the Cricut with the Art Philosophy cartridge.
  • The rosette was cut on my Big Shot with a Tim Holtz die.
These stars are really fun to make and lend themselves to all kinds of occasions. Try one when you get a chance!
