Punch Tag Star Burst card

SUPPLIES: Large SU. tag punchSmall SU. tag punchCircle punch for center Paper snips2-way glue penDimensionalsStamps: Perfect Presentation Paper: Soft Sky, Wintergreen, Glitter white cardstock, white mulberry paper Ink: Sage Shadow, Craft White Accessories: SU Tag punches, cuttlebug Techniques: Tag punch star
Cardstock for frame and DSP, Vellum/Mulberry or other thin paper for inner parts of the starburst.
Embellishments for center of starburst. ( I NORMALLY don't recommend Brand X punches, but Martha Stewart has a great snowflake for this card if you have a lot in your camp & don't want the expense of button embellishments).

Step by Step
Step 1: For a two-tiered star, punch out 16 small tags leaving about 1/4” between each one.
Step 2: Using the large tag punch, go back over the holes made by the small punch. Line up the punch so that you can see an evenly spaced frame around each hole. Punch out 16 frames.
Step 3: Each layer consists of 4 frames. Apply two-way glue evenly over the back of a few frames at a time. Put the sheet of lighter weight paper face-side up and carefully apply your frames in a cross-shaped pattern. Line up the inner diagonal sides of the frame.
Step 4: Follow the same process for attaching the next layer of 4 frames to the base layer. The second layer is attached to fill in the empty areas of the first cross-shaped layer.

Step 5: The points of the star will be visible when the second layer is attached. Use paper snips to trim away the excess.
Step 6: Repeat entire process to make another star, to mount on top of the first one. Use Dimensionals to separate the two stars.
Step 7: Embellish center of star and finish card.
