Scrapbook Paper Covered Star

Wow- the 4th of July is coming up fast, isn't it?

Just in case I forgot, all the blogs and Pinterest serve to remind me.  I actually have a bunch of patriotic crafts  that are sitting either half-finished or completely undone.... from last year!  This year, I vow to get them all done in time to enjoy them for a week or so!

Yesterday I sat down and pulled out my unfinished wooden star.  I made this one for Christmas a few years ago:

That one was a plastic star from the dollar store.  I found a wooden one for a few dollars at Michael's.  I've seen tin ones, too.  Point is, you can find them at lots of places.  

Again, I used the tutorial from Ashley at Make It and Love It (found here).  I bought some patriotic paper instead of fabric, and paired it with some red, white, and blue ribbon I have had FOREVER.  Here's the final product:

I love how it turned out!  I've got a few more patriotic crafts coming your way soon, so I hope you'll check back.  Also- not to beg, but I'm getting close to the big 700 followers.  If you're a lurker or a 1st-timer, I'd love to have you follow me!  (There just MIGHT be a fun giveaway involved!)

Have a great weekend, all!  My mom is coming in to town and I get to see my daughter's dance recital.  She makes the perfect ballerina, don't you think?
