Laced Star pattern

Instructions

Cut a 4-x-5-1/4-inch piece of blue card stock. Cut an 8-1/2-x-5-1/2-inch piece of white card stock. Fold the white card stock in half to make a 4-1/4-x-5-1/2-inch card.

Download the card template and print it out. Enlarge the template and use it to draw a Star of David on the blue card stock. Punch a hole at each corner of the star.

Cut a 36-inch length of ribbon. Starting on the back of the blue card stock, thread the ribbon through one of the holes. Leave a small tail and tape the tail to the back of the card.

Have a parent help guide the "sewing" of the star. Trim and secure the end of the ribbon with tape on the back of the card.

Attach the brads. Secure the blue card stock to the folded card with adhesive foam.
