Welcome! I started this blog because I love to craft. I dabble with scrap booking, and card making. I love bending, folding and tweaking paper. I try other crafts, too. I hope to share some projects with you.

Star Burst

   I was browsing the web a few weeks ago and I found this really great technique for making cards. I haven't made many cards lately but I have made a lot of ATC's. So I decided to alter it for making ATC's. My first ATC's using this technique was a sunrise for another swap. I found these quick and easy to make, not to mention fun. So when a member suggested that we do a Starburst Swap I was over the moon happy.


   I once made this envelope album using some of what I thought was some very beautiful black and white card stock. When I finished that album I had a lot of scraps left. This was the perfect way to use some of them. I cut them into assorted size wedges, kind of like slices of pie. Using a ruler I found the center of a piece of white card stock and marked it with a pencil line. I then applied glue onto the white card stock using a glue stick. Then starting at the center I quickly laid my black and white card stock in place starting in the center and working outward on both sides. I then trimmed off the excess paper.Then I used scor tape to adhere the black and gold ribbon in place. Using my die cutting machine I cut out a gold button from a gift bag. I glued an epoxy sticker in the center and then centered it onto my ribbon trim.

   I really love this technique. I'm sure that I will be using this again sometime in the future. It's a great way to use up paper scraps and add some pop to any card. Thanks for looking.

Take Care
