This really is easy to make and the Stampin'Up! stapler works great with this. I followed Ronda Wade's directions/video. I used the Under the Tree specialty paper which is a heavier cardstock perfect for boxes and great for this. You can use regular designer series paper, too. I used six 6" squares, scissors, and stapler. Then decorated with leftovers from the Many Merry Stars Simply Sent Kit and the 1" Sheer Linen Cherry Cobbler Ribbon. I will share the link to Ronda's video here, too. This makes a big star but you could use smaller squares, 3", 4", or 5" if you like.
