Tree star tutorial

To make the tree star you will need Jus-cutz scalloped star dies, a Be Creative glue wand, some double sided tape, some good quality, 160gsm papers (like these Winterland ones from Be Creative) and a length of ribbon.
1.First cut two scalloped stars the same size. You can choose whichever of the dies you want to fit your paper.

 2. Next score from each point to the 'inny' opposite
 3. Fold, so each point of the star is a mountain fold and each 'inny' is a valley fold.
 Your star should look like this. Complete the steps above for the second star.
 4. Pinch the end of each point of the star so it is flat
 5. Add a blob of glue from the glue wand to each point except one
6. Pinch the points together, making sure that one point stays open. 
 7. Make a bow and a loop from the ribbon.
 8. Wrap the double sided tape around the loop of ribbon and attach inside the open point,  
 before pinching the final point together.
 9. Lay the star flat and attach the bow with the glue wand, trimming the ends of the bow as needed.
You can decorate your star with a stamped image, die cuts or lots of glitter or glitter glue - it is up to you.
All of the products used can be found at Once upon a stamp
