Hi there!  Ginni here with a fun page and tutorial on how to make a "sun" with the Kreaxions Star Stencil and any Kreaxions 4-in-1 punch!  The beauty of this "sun" is that you can use it on any type of project – layout, card, tag, altered item, anything!  First, here's the full page layout I created using a picture of my Grandson Noah and a friend of his on the beach.

Before I get into the sun tutorial, here's how I created the border at the bottom of the page…  FIrst cut a 2 ¾” x 12” piece from cardstock and another from patterned paper. Using your preferred punch (I used Kreaxions #904) with no template, punch BOTH sides (top and bottom) of the patterned paper. This will give you two cut-away pieces. Place one cut-away piece on the bottom and the other cut-away piece on the top of the cardstock strip. Then put the punched piece in the center and adhere to your page. 

Now for the sun tutorial…  Start by cutting two stars using the Kreaxions Star Stencil from double-sided patterned paper. Using your preferred punch (I used Kreaxions #904), punch on the points of the star. On the un-punched star, simply fold up the points towards the center. Using the Kreaxions Circle Cutter, cut one 2 ¾” circle and one 4” circle from cardstock.   Adhere the center piece from the punched star to the smaller circle. Then adhere that piece to the center of the folded star. Place the cut-away piece from the punched star on top of the larger circle and adhere to your page. Adhere the punched star piece to the center of the larger circle piece.

Use some bling and brads and one of your pens to "jazz" it up a bit… 

I used some of the pieces cut away from the stars that looked like big chevrons on my photo as corners and I also used some of the cut-away punched pieces for accents.
