Happy Diva Christmas Hop!!!

Welcome to the Creative Scrapbooking Divas Christmas in July Blog Hop!

It may not feel like snow outside in the northern hemisphere, but if we get started on holiday projects now, we might be ready by December--we would love for you to plan and play along!  Please join us as we share with you the wonderful holiday projects of CSDivas.
If you are just joining us now, you can go to Luisa’s blog to start at the beginning so you won’t miss a hop stop and be eligible for the blog hop prize.
Our Blog Hop List:
Luisa - Creative Designs by Luisa-
Sandy - ScrapBook Blessings-
Stephanie – The Magic of Ordinary Days-
Jessica- Jessica's Blog-
Yolie – Just Yolie, Just Create-

Divas—don’t forget to comment on the main Diva blog HERE when you are done for a ticket to be entered for the blog hop prize!!!

The ingredients:
6 inch x 6 inch square of double-sided designer paper, Sticky Strip, Mini Glue dots, SNAIL Adhesive, 1/4 inch circle punch, 1/2 inch circle punch or button, Inkpad to match paper, dauber, cord (for hanger), Stapler.

Score paper at 1 inch intervals. Accordian fold along the score lines.

Make a small pencil mark at the 3 inch point on the folded paper. Staple on the mark.

With the folded edges away from you, mark ½ inch on either side of the staple (i.e. the center).
Cut from this mark on the bottom edge to the top corner. (Basically cut diagonal, this gives the points.)  

Repeat for both sides.

Put sticky strip along one side.

Remove red liner and press the two edges together to meet evenly.

Use a dauber to shade the folds and edges with ink.

You can use the punched circles or buttons to put in the center of the star.

Hope you enjoy!  Can't wait to see what you do!

For two tickets please post your entries using Mr Linky by July 12th 7 pm eastern, to be entered to win the hop prize.

Thanks for hopping and have a very merry Divalicious Xmas!
