Designer Note: My kids had so much fun creating this project.  I simply cut several 12" by 1" strips of patterned paper and gave them each a white 12x12 sheet of cardstock to glue their strips to.  After gluing on all their strips of paper, I trimmed the extra white paper with a paper trimmer and then cut them each a blue square to adhere.  They chose all the papers themselves, which made it even more fun.  I gave first child who finished a star paper punch to make stars with, and then second child to finish wanted "hearts mom, not stars."  Then child #3 didn't want punched stars because the paper "already had stars."  Then we stapled it to a ribbon, added bows, and it was done!  Now they love showing our visitors what we made.
