I was looking for a way to decorate the house for the 4th without spending any money... and I found the answer in my cardmaking supplies!
If you'd like to make one too, here's the "recipe" :)
Red, white and blue cardstock
a star-shaped paper punch
something to punch a tiny hole (I'm using a paper piercer, a 1/16" punch would work too)
Strong thread (I'm using a 12-weight cotton thread)
Punch out star shapes. Using your hole punching tool of choice, punch holes near the end of two star points.
String onto thread. Hang up and enjoy!
