a punch of red

I recently purchased the Martha Stewart Crafts All Over the Page star punch and knew I had to find a reason to use it for the 4th of July. This particular craft is so simple that I don’t know if I can even call it a craft. All you need is a mason jar or glass candle holder, a flameless tea light or votive, red cardstock and a star punch that you can use anywhere on the paper (not just the edges). Cut the cardstock to fit the candle holder and then punch the stars in a random pattern. Tape or glue the ends of the paper together, place in the candle holder and turn on your flameless candle. You can add a ribbon for a little extra adornment and the punched out stars work well as confetti.
