Christmas Leftovers...already???

Yes, I already have Christmas leftovers!  If you made the sliding window box that I posted yesterday, you noticed that you had a cute little leftover rounded square with a star in the middle.  Well, waste not, want not, right?  So I made a quick little Christmas card from them!  And since it's a star, you could use it any time of year if you use other paper, and you would have a beautiful gift box and matching card for a birthday, graduation or someone who just got a big promotion - anyone who's a star!

I used 1/2 sheet of 8.5"x11" cardstock for the card base, and cut the layer 3/8" smaller than the card front.  I sponged the edges of both the die cut and the green cardstock, then I distressed the edges of the green.  I used Stickles just inside the star to give it some bling.  The ribbon is tied in my signature half-bow.  You just tie a bow like normal, but when you pull the second loop through, pull it all the way until the tail comes out and then tighten.  It's so easy and elegant, but it looks a little less "frilly" than a bow. Give it a try!
