Embossed Cardboard Stars

You can easily turn ordinary cardboard into embossed looking objects with just a few simple steps. Use the figures to ornate your Christmas trees, your holiday packages or your floral decorations.



Basic Christmas Craft Ideas - Glitter Embossed Holiday Stars

For this project you will need:

- scrap piece of cardboard like a cereal box for creating a template
- thick white cardboard
- white dimensional paint
- iridescent glitter
- scissors
- white satin ribbon for hanging (optional)
- clothespins
- craft glue

Craft Pattern:

Stars Template

Stars Pattern






1. Print out the stars pattern in a size of choice and first glue the pattern on a piece of scrap cardboard. Cut the stars out. Now you have a stable template to trace around. Especially if you plan to make lots of these, the stable template is very helpful. Trace the star shape now onto white cardboard and cut the stars out.
2. Now use your dimensional paint and create designs of your choice onto the cardboard. Use our examples as a reference or create exciting designs of your own. While the dimensional paint is still wet, sprinkle glitter all over it. Tap off the excess glitter and then let the stars dry. This may take up to a few hours, depending how warm it is where you are.
3. If you want to hang these, create a loop with the ribbon and glue to the backside of the star. Use a clothespin to hold in place until the glue dries.
