Ahhhh January! Once a season full of snow and ice but now……grey, dull, warm and rainy. Uggg!
I really miss snow – sooo much. Knowing that a lot of people hate it because it makes everything slippery and cold, I still love how it lights up everything and dimming down all noise and sounds. I love the sound it makes when walking in it and I love the different beautiful shapes of snowflakes.
So with hope still intact, I made two snowflake projects I want to show you.
First of is the new gorgeous Snowflake Slot Form Swirls 3D Ornament:
I made it in 75% of the original and used AC Cardstock in White and white glitter paper from Best Creation.
It is incredible easy to cut and assemble – just takes a few hours from start to finish and it looks so much like a wood ornament.
I do like to dab a little glue here and there so nothing accidentally moves and it remains super sturdy.
Next I made the 3D Snowflake Northern Cross Star from the JGW Snowflake Stars kit:
I made this in it’s original size and it do require a lot of paper – but the result is just amazing!!!
I made it from AC Cardstock in White and Charcoal and decorated with white glitter paper from Best Creation and Silver Metallic paper from Tim Holtz.
Seems like I want to light up everything, so I added holes in the different layers in the lid of the box plus one hole on the side of the box through both lid and base for the string of LED lights to come through.
I also added panels of Silver Metallic paper on the inside of the base for the lights to reflect on, hoping for a greater light effect.
Now I hope for some snow to match my new pretty snowflakes – if you have any to spare – just send it my way please.
Thanks for joining me today – hope to see you again next time.
