These DIY party streamers are part of the decor for my annual Oscars bash.  I love how easy it is to make custom party streamers and confetti in any shape you want with the Cricut.

Using my Cricut, I cut dozens of stars from glittered card stock in just a few minutes and used them to make the party streamers and star confetti.

I even made some Oscar statuette confetti by uploading my own image into the Cricut Design Space software.

To make my star garlands, I wanted to layer two different stars together, but without wasting any of my pricey glittered cardstock.

Rather than just cutting out two different size stars and layering one on top of the other, I used the Cricut to make a star-shaped frame to go around each center star.

To do this, I used the star shape available in Cricut Access and layered a small star over a larger star.

While in the Layers menu, I selected both stars using the SHIFT key on my computer.

Then I used the Slice feature in the Layers pane to create the frame.

Finally, I removed the center of the star to reveal the frame.

You’ll have two small center stars after you slice the image. You can delete those or cut them to use on your party streamers.

As you can see, I used a combination of gold glitter, black glitter and layered stars of varying sizes on my streamers.

For the layered ones, I cut a medium sized star to fit in the center of each frame.

I used TomBow multi glue to attach the two cardstock stars together.

Here, you can see what each layered star looks like on the back. The frame is just slightly larger than the center star.

A few notes about cutting these stars with the Cricut Explore Air. I used two different kinds of heavy glittered cardstock to make these party streamers.

I used the deep-cut blade for this project, set the dial to custom and selected  0.6 mm glitter cardstock as my material. My machine had no issues cutting cleanly through the glittered paper.

To assemble the party streamers, I used tape to attach each star to a length of gold curling ribbon.
