Here's what you do:

Using your Die Cut machine, cut three stars all the same size, or you may vary them.

With your Distress Inks, distress the edges of each canvas.

With one of the die cut stars, add two or three Removable Glue Dots to the back and place it in the center of your canvas.

Using the pencil, add some tick marks on each edge of the star. Remove the star, and you’re left with an area to fill with your buttons!

Grab one larger button and thread it with the twine. Tie it off and cut it. Use a couple of Mini Glue Dots to adhere it to the center of the canvas.

Fill in the rest of the star with a variety of buttons using Mini and Micro Glue Dots. Fill it in as much as you’d like. Repeat these steps for the remaining two canvases.

Once you’ve filled in all the stars with buttons, you’re ready to celebrate the 4th in style! Add them to your existing décor, or they are cute enough to stand on their own!
