Glitter Star How To

Several people have asked how to make these so I put together a little "how to"

You need to cut (12) 2" x 2" squares and slightly fold and pinch the end

next, place some glue (Judikins Diamond Glaze works great)
to the side of the square then fold and press

punch two circles for the front and back of your star

start gluing your cones around the circle making sure that they are tip to tip in the middle of the circle. When you get them all down let them dry and then glue your second circle on top.

It is SO much easier to use double sided paper or cardstock but if you don't have it the next best thing is to paint it like I did below. 


use spray adhesive to the inside of the cones and sprinkle them with glitter (use some gloves so your hands don't get all sticky)

Last but not least punch a hole and thread your ribbon...yay! you have an ornament or gift box bow thingamabob.
