As promised, now it is time to share the star Christmas Tree Topper that I made.  For this tree topper, you need to cut two five point stars using your Big Shot.  I cut mine from the cardboard inserts that come in Designer Series Paper.  I also cut enough fabric (I used the Deck the Halls Fabric) to cover both sides.  I ended up trimming the tabs from the fabric thinking that it would make it easier to assemble, but it left me with some short edges that are somewhat noticeable if you look closely enough.  I would suggest trimming the fabric tabs but do not cut them entirely off.  Use the Big Shot Adhesive to adhere your fabric to the star pieces.  Then, assemble each star using your favorite strong adhesive.  Once you have each star assembled, embellish with additional fabric, brads, buttons, glitter, etc.

Cover a toilet paper tube with fabric or Designer Series Paper and emblish the lower edge with ribbon or glitter.

After the stars are embellished to your desire, glue one star to the toilet paper tube using a hot glue gun and then add the second star using hot glue along the edges to connect the two stars.  You will also need hot glue on your toilet paper tube.  Now it is ready to add to the tree.

This star was a prize in my current contest.  I did the drawing and our winner is Kathy D.  Congratulations to Kathy!  Enjoy your tree topper.

God Bless and Happy Stampin’!
