Trace the template on red, white, or blue cardstock. The heavier the cardstock the better.
Cut out the star, including the inner star.
Now, lay the star on a piece of clear contact paper and cut out along the edges.
Gather squares of red, white, and blue tissue paper.
Begin placing the tissue randomly on the contact paper.
When the star is full, press into another sheet of clear contact paper. Cut around the edges, as well.
Place or hang against the window for a beautiful patriotic decoration!
