Little Something Sunday with Tonya Dirk

Star Spangled Garland

1) Cut out a "gazillion" stars from double sided paper. I chose to cut out three different sizes. I used the basic cartridge on my Cricut and cut stars that measured 1", 2", and 2 1/2".

2) Next I used my Scor-pal and scored down the middle of every star.

3) Choose two stars of the same size and line them up back to back. I chose to use 2 stars from the same paper, however you could mix them up if you choose to.

4) Insert the first star under the presser foot of you sewing machine and sew traight down your scored line, allow a little thread in between stars and then insert the next star.

5) Continue sewing until you have used all of your stars or it is as long as you want it.

6) Lastly, bend all of your stars along your sewn/scored line to make them 3 dimensional. If you want you could just use single stars and then they would
have a flat look.

In this next photo you can see where some stars are flat and the double stars have been folded.
You could easily use this idea with different shapes, wouldn't butterflies or snowflakes be super cute?!
