Unlike other craft punches, the one we used lets you cut through anywhere on the paper, even the center.

Resources: Luminaria bags, in Red and White; Punch All Over the Page punch, in Starry Sky, by Martha Stewart Crafts;


  • Red and white paper bags

  • Star craft punch

  • Craft knife

  • Cutting mat

  • Votive candles or small pillar candles in glass holders

  • Sand or stones


  1. Use the punch in an upper corner of a red bag that’s folded flat. Continue punching down and across the bag.

  2. Print star templates to make larger stars. Trace templates in random places along hole-punched "Milky Way," and cut them out with craft knife.

  3. Open a red bag and line it with a white bag for contrast. Fill bottom with 1 inch of sand or stones, and put a votive or pillar candle set in a glass holder in place at the bottom.
