2008. this is a crafts project i did a while back. i really wanted to strengthen my skills with an x-acto knife. i took a piece of cardboard and glued scraps of newspaper. the studs are from an old belt i got for $2.50 and i filed it with a nail file to scratch it up. i sewed on the safety pins and cut letters out of magazines. the star (which i have many of) was my great grandmothers and it has something to with the girl scouts. i also used watercolor and construction paper.
