Seeing Stars!

Sometimes background paper is just too pretty to cover up!  🙂  It has been a week of transforming plain cardstock into something beautiful, sort of like “repurposing.”  It has been fun to rediscover some punches and put them to work, snipping out shape after shape.  Here is an idea for you to try with supplies you already have…

I left the plain edges, so that you could see the transformation.

This picture was taken to show you in more detail all the stars working together to make a big impression.

This last picture allows you to see how the stars are piled up.  Creating background paper adds a special thoughtfulness to the rest of the project.  This technique would be fun to do with other shapes, and really accomodate nicely for specific holidays.  Give it a try!
