Lone Star

When I made my yardstick heart, I thought, "Hey, I can make one out of belts too."  But, not being a super big fan of hearts (they still speak a little to me of the 80's, and although I do occasionally listen to the music from that decade, the geese and hearts make me a little ill), I decided a star would be much better.
 I used the same method I did with the heart--cut out a paper star and traced it onto the back of the belts and then cut them out (much easier!).  I glued them on a weathered old board I painted and voila, a lone star.

  10. So funny about the geese and hearts ~ I am of the same generation as you and am having a hard time with the eighties stuff coming back. Did you happen to see the Golden Globes and the dresses with shoulder pads and all that forest and emerald green? Ug. Just can't do it again. But I digress. Love the belts and star as I lived in the Lone Star State for 13 years. I really need to work on my sawing abilities.
