Celestial Challenge #42 Week 3, Anything But a Card

Good morning and happy Sunday to you all.  It's that time again when I am showing you something I created for Anything But a Card.  If you haven't heard of us, you guessed it ... it's a challenge blog and we make ANYTHING but a CARD.  So come follow me through my tutorial for this month's theme "Celestial"  There were so many different ideas I kept coming up with until one evening while Christmas shopping with hubby I came across this.  We were at Target and I found this Luminary in the "Dollar" section.  Well, it wasn't $1, but $3 wasn't bad either.

but it was rather plain ... so ...
to the trusty Cricut we go and cut a Star Border out from the Scrapping Table.  You can find her here on Facebook.  I have been a loyal fan of Michelle's for a very long time and I do believe I own every one of her Svg files.  She went off the grid for awhile but I do see she is back and has even re-released some of her older files.  They are all FREE!  If you are looking for any svg files, she has plenty and make sure to tell her I sent you.  I do believe she will also be putting out some NEW files in 2015.
So anyway, I cut that out on some silver vinyl and attached it to my luminary.
I needed some bling, so in shopping my stash I found ALL of these awesome stars.  Huh, who knew?  I make my own glue dots, because I'm very frugal that way.  Just purchase some Alene's Tack It Over and Over glue, use some backing from used up vinyl projects or in this case, my backing from my ATG tape.  You need to let the glue dots set up for a couple of hours for sure.  I usually make about 5 sheets at a time.  Press your stars onto the glue dots and press them on your project ... that simple! 
And now I have a Starry Night Light sitting on my headboard.  
Love it!

I hope I've inspired you to create something for our challenge over at Anything But a Card and hope to see you link up with us.  Please leave me a comment and let me know what you think of my Starry Night Light and hope to see you again soon.

As always, have a great day and God Bless!
