GLITTERLICIOUS GLORIOUS STARS








As we shopped our hearts out at Dear Lizzie last Thursday night, we came across some cute tiny paper 4th of July stars and of course we thought we can do those a little bigger and a little Over The Tipsy Top. We used metal stars from Ben Franklin. They were a brown rust color, but not after we got a hold of them. We soon transformed them into shiny, sparkling red and blue stars (yes, of course we used Mod-podge and glitter). The center is covered with crepe paper, red tissue paper, pipe cleaners, K & Co. glitter chip board, a banner and hot glue. (Be careful that glue will get ya, I only have 3 blisters on my hands right now from all the crazy hot glue gun activities Tonia and I have been doing lately!) Use your computer to print your favorite 4th ofof July phrase and make it pop with a touch of glitter. Now its your turn, embellish your metal stars big or small with a few extra things, it not only adds dimension but fabulous flair!

Love, The Tipsy Girls

Adorable as always. Have you ever considered getting a booth at a boutique store and selling your stuff. You have some fun unique ideas that you don't see.
