Tag Punch Star
by Donna Moore
Make a stellar focal point for any paper project with a few tools.
- Large Tag Punch
- Small Tag Punch
- 2-way Glue Pen
- Cardstock for frame
- Mulberry, Vellum or other light-weight paper for inner parts of the starburst
- Detail Scissors
Punch 16 small tags out of cardstock, leaving about 1/4" between each one.
Using the large tag punch, go back over the holes made by the small punch.
Line up the punch so that you can see an evenly spaced frame around each hole. Punch out 16 frames.
Each layer of the star will consist of 4 frames. Apply two-way glue evenly over the back of a few frames at a time.
Put the sheet of lighter weight paper face-side up and carefully apply your frames in a cross-shaped pattern.
Follow the same process for attaching the next layer of 4 frames to the base layer.
The second layer is attached to fill in the empty areas of the first cross-shaped layer.
The points of the star will be visible when the second layer is attached. Use paper snips to trim away the excess.
Repeat Steps 2-5 to make another star. Use dimensionals to adhere the two stars.
Finish your project.
