I used DI158 Paper Layering Star to create dimensional cut paper design. This die has cut and score lines, allowing you to cut the paper partially so the star can still be attached on the paper.

You can fold back the cut outs to reveal a crafted star, if you want. But I used it in a different way by cutting out every other line using scissors.
