American Craft sponsored our hangouts this month and supplied us with some amazing products.
I love scrapbooking and I love bling and American Craft provided me with both in the glitter and patterned cardstock they sent.
So here’s the scoop: cut out 9″ large stars with a die cutting machine (I used my Cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook Font.)
Hole punch all the stars that will hang directly from the ribbon.
The bling cardstock was extremely heavy and produced a little bit of excess when I cut them. I simply went with that look and used the edge distresser around all the cardstock stars.
Then glue the 6″ patterned stars to the 7 1/2″ solid cardstock ones.
Thread those stars through your glitter ribbon (more bling love!) and you are ready for the fun part!
For the center star add embellishments to spice it up a bit.
I love the combination of colors against our wooden fence in our back yard. Perfect for the July Fourth holiday!
You could easily use these same stars and add birthday or party embellishments to them to repurpose them for another occasion.
If you enjoyed this fun Patriotic project I’d love for you to check out more of my seasonal tablescape ideas below.

Disclosure: American Crafts provided me with product for my Google Hangout on Air, but the opinions are completely my own.
