Making Snowflakes! * Tutorial

Today I’m tickled to share my 4th Creative Crew Challenge project, CCREW0114HF (holiday focus).   And … I also have a video tutorial to help you create your own!

Here’s the challenge from the Splitcoaststampers Demo Forums:

  • January is National Hobby Month.  Share something crafty besides a card.  It can be a wreath, a banner, a tablescape, or picture frame, a headband, some jewelry … it’s totally up to you.
  • I chose ‘none of the above’.   😉

My favorite paper for the snowflakes is double-sided designer series paper.  This one is SU’s Afternoon Picnic.  It was lovely on its own, but I opted to add some cool shimmer with my Vanilla Smooch Spritz.  Hopefully you can see the shimmer effects in the following photo.

I began to explore sizes with this as I was working on the video.  Wow!  Some of my earlier creations were large enough to create great package embellishments for Christmas!  For those I used 6″ squares … You can see them on their packages in the Christmas photos.

I hope you’ll enjoy making these for your own decorations and/or package bow alternatives!   Hope you enjoy the video!
