Whether or not it’s cold where you are, imagine snowflakes and maybe you’ll see them in this die like I did. It’s actually called Blooming Flower Die, but I thought “snowflake” when I bought it.
It’s Chark here today with a simple winter project. The process is easy, but it does take a little time to put a 3-D snowflake together, just because it’s delicate. I used blue glitter paper, teal foiled paper and white cardstock. I liked white cardstock like Hero Arts layering paper the best—especially after I added the Diamond Stickles.
The foil paper and the glitter papers worked fine, but the back of each is white, so when you fold and glue, you might see a bit of that white peeking through. You could always ink the back to match the color of your paper (though it won’t be shiny) if you don’t love the white.
To make your own snowflakes
1. Die cut 5 flower shapes and fold each one in half, with the glitter/foil side folded toward the inside.
2. Adhere the outside (the white side of the paper) of one shape to the outside (the white side) of the next shape.
3. Glue all 5 together and add an ornament hook, string or wire to attach the snowflake to a Christmas tree.
You could also string these to hang on a mantle or staircase banister. I used clear liquid glue, but white glue or a glue dot runner would work too. Tape runners won’t work, since the tape might show through the die cut holes. I added the Stickles to the all-white one by just squeezing some out and running my fingers along the snowflake to cover. You can see the glitter a little in this photo.
