3D Star Tutorial - Boy's Rule - Studio Calico

Hi there!

It is my turn to post over on the Boy's Rule blog  and I have a tutorial to share there today,  of course I wanted to share it here, too!


I thought these little 3D stars would be fun to make and would also be a great accent to a masculine project.

Here's the how to...

First you want to die cut the star in the size of your choice.  This one is 2" and was cut with my Cricut.
 Now flip it over and use your ScorePal or any scoring device yo have, to score from each point, down to the intersection between each point.


 Keep working your way around the star until it ends up looking like this.
 This is the top view.
 To keep it 3 dimensional add some foam adhesive to the inside, I put mine 2 thick.
 Now make a few more, I made one 2" star and two 1.5 " stars.
 And here is a card I created using these fun stars, and some of this month's  Boy's Rule kit.


 And here are a few close up shots.


Thanks for visiting!
