Hello crafty friends! During my last visit at Joann's (which was weeks ago), I chanced upon this Martha Stewart tool in the clearance section:
I've been seeing this before, but I wasn't willing to pay full price. And since I had an additional 30% discount coupon, I decided to take it home.
Inside the package, there were two pieces of tools:
The triangle tool on the left is where you insert a 6 x 6 cardstock/paper, folded diagonally. The tool on the right is a cutter, which goes through the grooves of the triangle tool and cuts the paper inside.
This is how an assembled piece looks like:
And if you make 6 of them, you'll be able to make this pretty star:
During the process, I learned that good adhesive is key to keep all pieces together. In fact, I ended up using brads to make sure they are all secure.
This design reminds me of Christmas lanterns back in the Philippines. Now, I know how to make them.
