A star grazing party

Hi all, the youngest of our children ( Madaleine) is turning 18  in a couple of weeks ! ...... where dose time go. Raising our children has been a great journey for us and we couldn't be more prouder parents!
we wanted to do some quick simple invites to her star grazing party.... it had to have stars glitter and a bit of fun..... I thinks we covered all three requirements ;)
I used A4 sheets of card stock and cut them into 4 to make small size cards. rolled a star background, punched a heap of label punch outs inked the edges and stamped my message. More punch outs with stars attached to the label with a foam dot and lots of glitter, To make this an efficient proses when doing anything in bulk do each step on everything then move to the next step, believe me it is quicker! so Ive covered the stars, glitter and now for the fun bit. Each star label is on a home made action wobble....

I used some wire form the cheap shops, not sure what the gauge is and two 3/4" circle punch outs. Wrap a length of wire around a pencil giving yourself at least 3-4 full turns to create a spring. Hot glue each end to two circle punch outs and that's all there is to it.... I then added it to the back of each of the labels then onto the card front. Keep in mind the thinner the gauge wire the more it will wobble.... mine was a little stiff. While you've got all the gear out make a heap and stash then away for quick creating on the next project.

Our cheeky young lady! LOL ..... I hope you have enjoyed this, sit back and watch the video.
Blessings to you

and a last thought

And those who are wise -the people of God-shall 
shine as brightly as the suns brilliance, 
and those who turn many to 
right doing will glitter like stars forever. 
Daniel 12:3
