I have been procrastinating the decorating of the My Creations Star because it looked so intimidating. Boy was I wrong. One of the reasons I love selling CTMH is all the support they offer their consultants. When people started questioning how to make this star, Corporate posted a printable template which made this project extremely easy. I brought this to show at my sister's home gathering, not realizing it matches her decor and I had to wrestle it from her at the end of the party! I have already ordered more and plan to do them in different patterns... and I may just give her this one after all!
I started by sponging all the edges of the 3D star base with Chocolate ink. I cut the pieces as per the template and sponged the edges of the paper too. I made a small green flower for the center using one of the strips of leftover green paper from the same paper pack. It was made using a border punch, but could have just as easily been made using the Cricut and one of our awesome cartridges. I finished it off with one of the Pewter Filigree Charms (Z1269) - shown below.
I wanted to show this beautiful star in another pattern. It is actually the bonus project featured in the Chantilly Workshop On The Go. I did not make the Chantilly one yet, but have a feeling I just might.
I plan to do a My Creations Star Workshop sometime in March. The cost will be $20 and will include the star, precut materials and coordinating embellishments. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in the details once they are available.
