The heat is here! I decided that I needed to get a haircut for a nice cool quaff! So, today I got it buzzed down to a manageable length! You would think with the bald spot I have that things might chill down pretty well...I totally think that me bald patch acts as a direct sun catcher! Poor old Patch has been burnt for lack of forgetting it's there. Only when I look in the mirror do I realize that I'm a MONK!
Anyway, now that the heat and humidity is here to stay, the W.T. pool is filled and ready to swim in...hair is cut to a cooler length...ant and mosquito spray is at arms length....then I realized the 4th of July is upon us! With Independence thoughts rolling around in my head, I decided it was surely time to do a star lantern or actually several to hang out on the front porch to hail in the 4th's fireworks!
For Tonight's Take Out Tuesday I will be a making a 3-dimensional star, then adding holes so that it may be made into a lantern...If you plan to follow along tonight or at a later time with the recorded show, I have included two templates to use to make the project.

You will need some chipboard of course...probably 3 sheets, some patriotic printed paper, a tea light or if you have a Michaels around, they have a set of red, white and blue 12/light Bee or Fairy Lights (Christmas Lights) that are on sale 50% off. Some red, white and blue paint...I think that's it...We shall see what happens...bad or good, it will be fun...
