I always love to add a little pop of fun to my parties and I knew that since Luke’s loves stars, they were a natural addition to his party.
The star mobiles that I created turned out exactly like I’d hoped: awesome! Keep reading to get the full tutorial!
I created my stars using my Silhouette CAMEO, but you could also cut them out by hand. I just wanted to set it to cut and get other stuff done in the mean time. 🙂 To create your template in Silhouette, you’ll start by finding a star shape. The star that I have is part of a set and I only wanted a single star, so I had to make a few adjustments.
Start by clicking the ungroup icon in the bottom left corner of the Silhouette Studio program.
Once I ungrouped the stars, I deleted two of the extra pieces which left me with a single star.
The next part sounds complicated, but it really isn’t. Click the line drawing tool on the left side of the program. Along the top, I found a button that was filled with various preforated lines. When that is clicked, it comes up with a menu down the right side of the screen. Click the evenly spaced preforation and draw it from the top to the bottom of the star. This creates two equal pieces of the star.
The stars are ready to be cut!
For each mobile, you’ll need four stars for each mobile and a permanent glue stick.
One by one, apply a generous amount of glue to the back of two stars. Only glue half of the star. Repeat the process until the fourth star when it will be glued to the open half of the first star.
I used a 1/8 in. circle punch to create a hole at the top of each star mobile. Hang these babies with colored baker’s twine or fishing line and they are ready to go!
