Template for Fall Star

1.  Trace and cut 5 Template A patterns from the Copper Leaf paper. Turn Template A over, trace and cut 5 more patterns from the Copper Leaf paper.
2.  Trace and cut 5 Template B patterns from the Autumn's Palette paper. Turn Template B over, trace and cut 5 more patterns from the Autumn's Palette paper.

Lay out your patterns onto the star to guide you before you glue them on. The patterns were designed to have about a 1/4" of the star showing around all the edges. 

3.  Starting with the A patterns, apply Mod Podge to bottom of the pattern you are adhering, and then apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over the top once it is adhered to the star. Repeat this for all of the A patterns.
4.  Now with the B patterns, apply Mod Podge to bottom of the pattern you are adhering, and then apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over the top once it is adhered to the star. Repeat this for all of the B patterns.
5.  Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the center of the star to give the metal the same finish as the paper.
6.  Set the star aside to let dry.
7.  Once dry, use Stickles to add accents to the star by tracing the outline of a few leaves.

Let it dry overnight before displaying.
