Snowflake Ornaments!

Hello and happy Wednesday everyone! Wow!  It is December!  How did that happen?!   Rosemary here with a really fun project that you can do with your kids.   Snowflake ornaments!   They are so easy to make although you do need to have a little bit of patience, lol!


So here they are on a little tree I have in my entry way.   To make the ornaments I simply die cut four snowflakes using the Bold Snowflake die from silver glitter paper.   It would be fun to die cut them from colored cardstock and create a garland, too!  Using my scoring tool I lined up each snowflake with one of the scoring lines and the scored down the center.   Folding each snowflake is probably the most time consuming part of the project.   Once all the snowflakes were scored and folded I applied Just Glue It adhesiave to one side of a folded snowflake and the adhered a second one.  Once I had three of the snowflakes adhered I cut a length of fine silver thread, folded it in half and tied at knot at the open end.  I added some glue to the point where all the folded snowflakes meet (see the photo) and then placed the knotted thread down the center.  I pulled it up until I had enough of a loop to hang the ornament.  The I applied adhesive to the final folded snowflake and adhered it to the other three.   Now your loop is secure inside the snowflake and the snowflake ornament is finished.  I hope the photos are helpful in showing how I created them.  Going to add this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge to use die cuts.
