I cannot find the tutorial on making the star tonight, so I will briefly explain and if you need more directions, email and I'll get together with you.

You will need to punch 10 real red stars and 5 stars in a print. Cut off two "arms" on each star and you will be left with a point. Mount 5 real red and 5 designer paper points alternately on a Very Vanilla 1 3/8" circle. After these are mounted, mount five more real red points with dimensionals on top of the first real red points.
