How do you make it?

1. Cut the craft foam in 8 pieces approximately 1 x 2.5 inches each. Cut tree shapes out of them. Take the skewer stick and make some tiny holes in the trees. Cut a piece of baker’s twine.

2. Add the foam to the roller: Position the trees so that their stumps point to the handle. Wrap the twine around and through the trees so that it looks like a hillside or a walk.

3. Press the roller onto an ink pad and roll until it is completely covered with green ink.

4. Roll it onto your paper. Let the ink dry.

How do you make it?

1. To make the stars, take 5 equal-size straw halves, and string them one after the other onto a long piece of baker’s string. Tie the two ends of the string together snuggly so you’re left with a pentagon of straws on string.

2. Now comes the folding. Twist the circle while folding it in half so you end up with two triangles.

3. Then fold the triangles toward each other, and tuck the top point of the bottom triangle underneath the straight bottom edge of the triangle above it.

You might have to move the straws around a little bit to scoot them into the right spots for a symmetrical star, but if you’ve folded it correctly, it should be snug enough to stay in place.

4. Tie your star to the package with more baker’s string. You could tie it around with a single string, or add some extra fun by running a piece of string through each of the straw lines of the star (five strings total).
