Hi there!  Popping in real quick to post this patriotic card made from the Sizzix Star die.  Kay Kalthoff inspired me to use the negative piece that was left after cutting out stars for another project.  She suggested using the leftover as a focal piece.  Great idea - no waste!  Additional stars were added inside the cut-out areas and a little Bakers twine wrapped around the bottom completed this easy card. The Glimmer paper star looks so much better in real life.   I'll probably add a tag with a sentiment and hang from the twine - when I decide who the recipient will be.
The 3-D stars flanking the card were made from the largest star.  On the back side of the star, score from each point all the way down.  Gently fold on the score lines.  You may have to work with it a bit to shape it, but it will come together.  They'd look great as a decorative banner for the 4th of July or even ornaments for the tree.  See what you can come up with!

That's all for now.  Thank you for stopping in today!
