  • Step 1

    Download the free printable and cut the cards out on the edges.
  • Step 2

    Make an opening in the card with your cutter where indicated with a stippled line.Take your glue and carefully put some glue inside the star on the card, you can use a toothpick to make sure that you do not go over the lines.
  • Step 3

    Now put some glitter over the glued area on the star and make sure to cover all the glue. Carefully turn the card upside down, so that the excess glitter will fall off. Neatly touch-up the spots, if there are some blank spots between the glitters.
  • Step 1 for glitter stars

    Print the star shapes onto some cardboard. Cut all the stars out on the edges.
  • Step 2

    Cover the entire star with some glue and put some glitter over the glue. Make sure that the whole star is covered in glitter. Shake off the excess glitter.
  • Step 3

    Take a sparkle and stick two stars together with some glue on either side of the bottom part of the sparkle. Pull the sparkle from bottom to top through the card, so that the top part of the sparkle will stick out at the top and the stars will stick out at the bottom.

Croque Madame – weekend breakfast treat

Still wondering what the big difference is between a croque madame and a croque monsieur? An egg. And the egg is placed on top of the croque madame – not the monsieur.
