Should have been Xyron .....but now it is / Barn Star Tutorial.

This whole week Xyron has been featuring projects that should have been made with Xyron but weren't.  We want to show you how easy Xyron could and will make these is a picture and link to the project that inspired my beach themed star.

Today I've got a tutorial for you that your Xyron products are going to help make super simple.  Create a 3-D star adorned with your favorite motif.  On my star I used Graphic 45's latest collection " By the Sea" and finished it off with cut outs of seashells and rosettes.  Perfect for the beach house  So what to see how simple it is????? Take a peek. 

Step one: pick up a plain 3-D star at your local craft shop.  Use a piece of copier paper and lay over the star.  Using your bone folder, crease the outline of the star shape.  This is going to create a template for you to use.

 Step Two: Cut your shape out of the paper and then use as template on your designer card stock  I drew in pencil around my shape.  Cut out the pattern and do this on five different patterned paper. 

Step 3: Pronounce your center crease with a bone folder for a crisp edge.

Step 4: Run through your 5" Creative Station, then attach onto your star.

Step 5: Finish off all five of your shoots on the star as shown and then top with whatever embellishments you would like.  Take a look at my finish star close up....

Here's a complete list of Xyron goodies used on this project:

The Little Things Layout

This collection is one that compliments the greens of March for sure...Limelight from Kaisercraft is the latest collection for the month.  Butterflies, birds, flowers and time pieces make for a great eclectic mix. 

This picture is one that I was able to capture at Disney's Wild Kingdom.  That is such a great park if you've never been.  I loved it.  I could have take the safari ride all day long...over and over...well you get the idea LOL. 

I'll see you Wednesday with Heartfelt Creations post so be sure to pop back in.   Have a great start to your week.
