Try it Tuesday~ A large paper Star from paper lunch bags!

Hi guys!
Thanks for stopping in for Try it Tuesday!!!  This is not my idea.  I saw it on FB and 
pinned it to my Pinterest board and that is where it stayed until this past weekend.
Have you seen the large star that is made from paper bags?
Super cute, right!!
To make this it takes 7 lunch bags ( I used 8, trying to be different) ~
I can walk you through this but here is the original post for the Giant Paper Bag Stars

These are the bags I purchased.  I haven't made a Kraft Star yet, but I will.
To make the paper bag star you hot glue 7 bags ,one on top of another, creating a stack of bags.
Then you cut the tips off the bags to make a point.  Then you hot glue the front bag to the back bag.
Use a hole punch to make a hole, to run twine through, for a hanger.

To add the color, I created a mask for the blue and then cut strips for red.
The products I used were Dylusions by Ranger in Postbox Red and London Blue.
I used what I had on hand.  The next step I did was add chipboard stars (sprayed with Dylusions /White Linen). Adhere to paper bag star.

Final step was splattering, the paper bag star, with black and white
  irRESISTible texture spray.
Check out the link posted above.  Very easy and fun to make!!  
You still have plenty of time to make this for the 4th of July :) !!
I hope you do!!!
