What You'll Need:

  • 12"x12" sheets of red, white, and blue cardstock
  • Craft glue
  • 1/8" hole punch
  • Starpaper punches in several sizes
  • Twenty 10" strips of ribbon (1/4" to ½" wide)
  • Cord or twine

Make It: Cut white cardstock into two 6"x12" rectangles. Along the 12" side of one rectangle, measure and punch a hole at 4", at 8", and at 11 ½". Glue ribbon strips along the opposite side. Punch out stars in various sizes from colored cardstock. Flip white cardstock over; glue stars onto rectangle. Roll rectangle until one edge meets, but does not overlap, the first hole. Glue edges together, press firmly, and let dry. Thread cord through holes and hang.
