Barn Star Tutorial

One of the funnest and most asked about home made embellishments Ive found happen to be one of the EASIEST projects that you can create and today I will teach you how to make them!

First thing is first, either "Trace", "Hand-Cut", or use a "Die-Cut" machine to creat your star!

Next step is the key step and very easy, draw straight lines from the tip of each arm all the way down to the "In" corners.

Next fold with your lines on the "Inside" of your fold and make a crease on every line.

When you are finished making all of your creases your star will look like this:

Next is the step that adds the dimension to your star! Ink or chalk the edges and the creases with your ink pad or a Q-Tip.

Tip: fold your star at each crease again to make inking the creases easier.

Here is the finished result!!!

And here is an example layout using the same technique!

I just love the "Americana" feel these stars add and they can be done in so many different ways to add interest to "Any" project!
