Simple Stars from Tag Shapes (revisited)

I was asked a question by a reader that reminded me of the tag stars I did a couple of years ago.  These were originally done with punches but I designed some files to make them easier to do and less bulky since you don't have to put some many layers together.

I will just post a few photos and the links to the original posts for those of you who were not reading my blog back in 2008. 

You can see in this screen shot that these are done by simply overlapping silhouetted tag shapes to create a new image.  There is some quick hand trimming of the points involved (you could actually add shapes to the file to make these cuts but I didn't bother because they were such simple snips).

This was the first star I designed using a tag from the Wedding Cartridge.  You can read more about it at this link Tag Star.

The second variation was done with the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge and the post can be found here Tag Star 2.

A third variation was adapted to a six point snowflake (there are two overlapped in the image above) and can be found here Tag Snowflake.

Now that I am thinking about these designs again I have a few ideas about more variations that can be made with some of the more recent cartridges.  I need to find more hours in the day!

We have both of our sons home now and Tuesday turned out to be a crazy day with so much to do before Christmas.  I hope to get a chance to post the scalloped tag  file later in the day but I wanted to make sure all of you who subscribe have something in your in box Wednesday morning.

  1. Thank you for all you share. I have learned so much from your postings. You are so prolific in your creativity, I don't know how you find time to do it all. If the truth be told, I could do more crafting if I didn't spend so much time reading my favorite blogs! LOL! But I learn so much from you all that I don't want to miss anything..... Anyway, thank you and Merry Christmas to you and your family.
