So festive and would work for Christmas, Birthday parties, Graduations all kinds of occasion's. The kit is called Mega Stars SVG Kit.
I saw these and loved them but they use a lot of paper for one star...and I live in a sleepy town where I can't just go down the street to get more. When I need more cardstock I have to order it. Well that is most people these days but 13 1/2 sheets per star is pricy to the normal person. To make three and they aren't even for you??? Honestly I did think twice about it. When I really thought about it and considered the joy it would give the person I was giving it to it was worth the cost to me. It is a surprise and while his wife might read this he will not. I can share with you this is for my Best friends husband for his birthday. We are having them over on his birthday on the 10th to celebrate our birthdays ( mine is on the 14th) and have burgers. Grover loves patriotic stuff just like I do and decorates his yard that way. I love going over and seeing what is new. I sealed these with glossy acrylic spray and am hopeful that if he puts them outside they won't fade to terribly.
The blue star is cut from Bazzill Admiral cardstock and embossed with a Darcie Fireworks folder, then I used Craf-t rub on Metallic paint which Trina Struckman told me about to bring out the emboss on it. The color I used was silver blue.
The Red and white stars was a bit more challenging and that is because I glued the panels on before putting the star together. It was VERY confusing to me and my suggestion is to glue the star together first then put your panels on. I did the internal panels as I put the star together. The base of the red star was cut from Bazzill Blush Red Dark. The White star was cut using American Craft White Card Stock. The internal papers are from Photo Play and the collection is called Live Free. I purchase this collection last year when it came out but purchased a lot of extra sheets of paper from Scrapbook.com as I loved this collection. I do that whenever I find something I can use in a lot of other projects.
Those are my stars and maybe next year I can make some for us. I look forward to using this Kit in many ways and for many celebrations. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and read my blog. I look forward to seeing the many designs to come using this Mega Star. One person in particular I am hoping she uses my idea and makes it.. I won't spoil it for you yet.. Thanks again and Happy Craftin' Y'all! Blessings, Sharalyn
