OWH – Starburst

  • Patterned papers – Basic Grey “Boxer” collection (5 different patterns, including the flower)
  • Die cuts – Flower made with “Easy Rosette 017” by The Cat’s Pajamas. After I cut them out (you use two rosettes to make one flower), I accordian folded them and adhered the two pieces to make the flower.  Thanks is stamped on a Spellbinder’s Nestabilities die from the “Curved Rectangles” set.
  • Stamp – Lockhard Stamp Company
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

I followed the tutorial on Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps to make this Starburst card. I enjoy paper piecing and had never made a starburst pattern before. This is really good for using up paper scraps as well!
