Gold sequins, 8mm
After gathering your materials…
Step 1: Paint dowel with glitter paint -you’re going to want 2-3 coats. If you’re in a rush -metallic paint only takes
one coat. But you know that glitter is worth it.
Step 2: Glue a small ball of fluff around the tip of the dowel and hold till dried. This little ball is what holds the
dowel in the star.
Step 3: To make the pocket of the star -snip the top tip off then use your needle and thread to start sewing on
sequins to the pocket and back of the star.
Step 4: Stack the three stars together. Start stitching on the base of the star just over to the left of where the dowel
Step 5: Continue stitching all around, clockwise until you get to the 5th point of the star. Stuff a little of the fluff
in each of the points -I use the point of my scissors to help guide the fluff. And no need to over fluff!. Finally stick
the dowel in and stitch closed.
Step 6: Roll or fold the You’re A Star card and insert in the pocket. A little bag of glitter, love note or a
gift card would be a perfect match as well. You’re done and ready for magic!
