People always tell me they have a hard time scrapping pics of boys because so many of our supplies are “girly”. Well, why can't you use glitter and pink on a masculine scrapbook page about boys? Choose the colors and embellies to match the mood, not the gender. On this page, I chose stars and glitter and happy colors for this happy memory of Matthew and his favorite cousin together.

Here is a quick and easy way to make glittered borders on stars –  it's not what you'd think!

Aren't those fun? Here's how to create them:

Gather together a Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker, punched stars in 2 sizes (less than 3″ wide), and Clearsnap glitter.

Run the larger stars through the Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker with the patterned side of the paper facing the adhesive. This will apply adhesive to the front of the star.

Peel off the large star and apply a sdmaller star to the center front, leaving an even border around all edges.

Press the star face down into glitter to apply glitter to the exposed adhesive on the border of the large star. Dust off excess glitter.

These stars work well on a masculine scrapbook page like the one I created. Or use them for a teen, baby shower (in pastels), or birthday page!
