I picked up these blanks a couple years ago thinking I would give them to my besties on our semi-annual get together. But then Covid hit and you know how that affected travel. So, they sat undone for a while, then I worked on them a bit thinking we’d be able to get together soon, but it was still on virusy out, so they sat half done for a while longer.
The back and sides were originally red, but I painted the sides with various pearlescent paints. I cut down straight pins for each of our locations, then glued a rhinestone to head of each of them.
The stars are repurposed beverage cans (when I find a thing I like, I really do it!) cut with a Bigz die on a Sizzix Big Shot and stamped with individual metal stamps that I just happened to buy at a yard sale that the three of use went to together when we got together here in Montana years ago!
