How-to: Glitter Marquee Stars

Hi guys, it's Gina! To honor the stars and stripes this July, I hope you can draw inspiration from the stars I crafted.

Silver Glitter Marquee Star:
Use the included template that comes with the 8.5" Marquee star and trace onto a sheet of silver glitter cardstock.  Use a pencil to mark where the light bulbs go and use a hole punch to punch out the holes. Set aside. Then, use a Dear Lizzy Fine And Dandy Die to trim a 3D bow out of Mariner paper. Use adhesive to adhere the bow pieces together. Attach the 3D dimensional star to the front of the bow.

Adhere bow to the front of a small white doily, set aside. Trim a piece of book paper and fold it back and forth accordion style.  Adhere folded accordion paper to the top right hand side of the star. Then, place bow with doily on top. Tuck a few pieces of silver tinsel behind the doily and secure with adhesive.

Happy 4th Star:
Use the included template that comes with the Marquee Love Christmas star and trace onto a sheet of Hubble Paper.  Use a pencil to mark where the light bulbs go and use a hole punch to punch out the holes. Set aside. Adhere a 3D dimensional star to the front of a small white doily. Again, set aside. Then, use a Heidi Swapp Happy Die and cut the word out of silver glitter paper using a die cut machine. Next, place the happy die cut word to the front of the doily embellishment. Attach a small silver clothespin to the top right hand side of doily embellishment. Adhere doily to the top right hand side of star marquee. Trim a small banner piece out of white cardstock. Trim star border from astro paper and adhere to bottom of white banner piece.

Attach red glitter Thickers spelling out "4th" to the front of the banner piece. Adhere banner pieces just below doily embellishment.  Create a small pom pom fringe using tissue paper and scissors. Finish star by securing pom pom fringe to the top right hand side of the star marquee just behind the doily.
