Grab your handy scissors and cut out your stars!

blue star, ruler, paper crafts Begin by drawing a line (with a ruler) straight down the center. Retrace it with force so the paper yields a crease- this will make folding easier, trust me. blue star, stardream paper, ruler Using a ruler, draw a diagonal line across your star connecting each top corner, to each bottom point. These two lines should meet in the center and create an "X" formation. Remember to retrace the lines with force to yield a crease through the paper. stardream paper, blue star, ruler Draw another set of diagonal lines connecting the top two points, to the bottom corners. Again, remember to retrace with force; Now all five lines should intersect in the center of your star.

Time to Start Folding...

Fold your star in half along the vertical line, than fold your star along the four remaining lines. It should be easy to fold because of all those yielded creases!! Star with lines folded Once all of the lines are folded your star should look something like this... Star with points pinched together Start pinching the points together, this is what is going to give your stars a three dimensional look! Red, white, blue, brown kraft stars

And now you have some hand-made 3D stars to decorate your home with on this Fourth of July!

 Sparkler Holders

These sparkler holders are meant to go below any sparkler, to guard children's hands from dangerous flares. They are covered in JAM Duct Tape so they aren't flammable.


Start off by printing a 6 inch star template, onto your navy JAM paper.

duct tape, blue tape, tape Using your JAM Blue Duct Tape, apply three sheets of tape onto your star, make sure to cover all of it. Once your star is taped down to the table, smooth and pat the duct tape down to make sure your star is stuck. blue star, clear wrapping paper Peel up the duct tape, now it's time to start folding over the tape. duct tape, tape, blue tape, star, blue star Any tape that is visible from the front, take your scissors and snip off! Just make sure to cut along the line of the paper star, eventually you'll get the hang of it. Once finished, take a thumb tack and stick it through the center of the star. Wiggle it around to get a decent sized hole, and stick a sparkler through! sparkler, blue star
