Patriotic Star Garland 2.1

I told you there were going to be more red, white, and blue projects coming your way. I love working with paper. I love buying pretty paper but I actually make things with it too. Well, eventually! I went through my decorative paper stash and found all the blue and red papers I thought would work well together.

Then I used my Cricut to cut out stars in 2 different sizes, mixing the patterns and colors up.

I used a small hole punch to make a hole in the center of the stars, layered them, then used a brad to hold them together.

I made stars like these a few years ago for my July Wreath.

Then I hung them from bakers twine with tiny red clothespins. Now I just need to decide where to hang it, on the mantel or the shelves in the dining area?

Those little red clothespins are just too cute. I am such a sucker for miniature things like that. :)

This is seriously darling! I might go a little insane with red, white and blue at this time of year.
