    can you tell me how you did these stars?

    Just Google or search Pinterest for ninja stars, Julie! It's easy origami. I used foil 12x12 card stock in the scrapbooking section at Michaels! Good luck! My son and his buds STILL play with them! Very sturdy! :)

    I actually created that using Word. I created shapes in black. The eyebrows were the hardest part. It might be easier to use a graphic online like i did for the invitation and print that out for boxes. If you'd like, I could send you the eye graphic i created. -Candce
