stickin' it to pinterest - vol. 5

seems like it's been a while since i got my craft on, doesn't it?

well i saw this little diddy on pinterest & decided it was something even i could handle.  i pinned it & went on my merry way not really thinking much more about it {as i usually do}.  then one day i was walking around the craft store surrounded by christmasy crafts & decor & music & feeling all hyped up on christmas spirit when i walked right into a display of mixed christmas cardstock on sale.  i immediately remembered these cute stars & decided it was meant to be.

such an occurrence could only be explained by divine intervention, yes?  


i followed this tutorial.  it's pretty dang similar to my own tutorial below... just different paper?  and fonts.  yes, i used different fonts.


not pictured:  stapler & string.  and super glue.  oh & a pencil.  turns out i suck at making supply list photos.

just follow the steps below.  if you can't read the type on the picture, just click & it will enlarge big enough for your reading pleasure.





the original tutorial used plain ol' elmer's glue to stick the stars together.  i didn't have that on hand & couldn't get the stapler to make it work either.  that's where the super glue came in... stuck a few drops on the insides, smooshed the two halves together & now they're bonded for life.  how romantic.


there you have it!  make some in different colors, designs & sizes.  then attach some string & hang 'em up all over the house... i love 'em!

special thanks to my sister in law jodi for making these along side me the other day.  the stapler was her idea & i must say it was genius.  pure genius jodi.

another pinterest project crossed off the bucket list.  hip hip hooray!
