This snowflake is fun to make. Trust me — after you make the first one, you’ll be able to do it easily.
The first thing I did was take a sheet of Whisper White card stock and stamp the ornament from the Ornament Keepsakes stamp set in Cherry Cobbler 24 times, leaving some space in between the stamped images. Out came the Holiday Ornaments Framelits and I placed the framelit over the stamped image and ran it through the Big Shot. This is a good thing to do while you’re watching TV! The following photo shows my placement of the framelit on my stamped images.
Once you have your pile of ornaments in front of you, set aside 6 of them. The others you are going to fold in half.
Now we are going to attach them to each other. I really don’t quite know how to explain this. Using Snail, I adhered three of the folded ornaments together, aligning them on the fold. I then placed them on the ornament that did not have the fold. I hope the photo below helps you see what I mean.
I punched a 1″ circle out of Whisper White card stock, and using my glue gun, I attached them to the circle. I used the Silicone Craft Sheet shown on Page 31 of the Holiday Catalog. It worked fabulously. I’m not very good with a glue gun, so it was a tremendous help.
My next step concerned the snowflakes. I took a sheet of Whisper White card stock and stamped the Versamark pad over the entire sheet. I then took my Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder and embossed the sheet. This way I have a complete sheet of sparkly paper ready to use when I need it. I then took the Snow Flurry Bigz Die from Page 14 of the catalog and ran my sparkly paper through. You can cut two snowflakes at once with these large dies. I attached them together offsetting the two snowflakes.
I pulled out my Cherry Cobbler Baker’s Twine. I made loops of the twine, tied it through a Brights Designer Button, and then trimmed the loops to make the frayed edges. I took another piece of the twine and glued it to another 1″ circle of Whisper White card stock.
Now it’s time to put it all together. Glue the entire Cherry Cobbler ornament snowflake to the circle with the twine on it. Glue the snowflakes on next, and finally glue the button on the top of it all.
I really need to get my darling daughter to show me how to work her video camera! Hope this helps you make these cute ornaments!
