Isn’t this weeks free design beautiful? While this star may seem a little intimidating, it’s actually quite simple to assemble. Here are the supplies I used to create this lovely 3d star:
- Silhouette CAMEO
- 12″x12″ Cutting Mat
- 2 sheets 12″x12″ red cardstock
- double sided tape
- (opt) light weight led wire light strand
Load cut file into Silhouette and select cut settings. Adjust size if necessary.. (The design fits the 12″x 24″ cutting mat, but since I didn’t have that size cardstock I cut out the design 2 times with 12″x12″ cardstock and cutting mat.
Apply cardstock to mat and insert into silhouette.
Cut shape. (Repeat if necessary to get 8 sections total)
Fold on perforated lines.
Using 4 of the pieces, you’ll apply adhesive to the flaps to secure to each other until one side of the star is completed (I used double sided tape)
Repeat previous steps to assemble remaining 4 pieces to create the other side of the star. (Optional: I taped a small super lightweight strand of led light inside to make it glow at night. I also added a mini white glitter ball to the front of the star.)
When you have both sides assembled, you can attach them together to finish off the 3d look. This takes a little handy work to get all the edges to line up evenly.
Now you have a lovely star which will make a great addition to your holiday decor.
