Just like every year, we made snowflakes! In the past, we've done a variety of styles.. but this year's are my FAVORITE!!
For the snowflakes, I started out by choosing some shades of white and gold.. I just LOVE these colors together!! We used text weight Stardream paper (which is a soft metallic color) for making the snowflakes.. in the light you can really see the snowflakes glisten!
I also created my own music paper by copying an old music book onto some ivory colored paper... I just love how the music notes tie everything together!!
(6) pieces 1" x 8 1/2" -group A
(6) pieces 1" x 8 1/2" -group B
(6) pieces 1" x 11" - group C
**Note that in the photo below, groups A and B are pictured together because I cut them out of the same music paper**
With group A, fold the pieces over once using double sided tape to just tape the ends together.
Once you've assembled all your loops, cut out 2 circles (I used a 1 inch scalloped circle punch).
Use hot glue, apply a dollop to one side of a circle and arrange your 6 snowflake sprigs on it.
The glue dries fast, so work quickly!!
Once you've arranged and securely glued the sprigs down, glue the second circle on top (opposite of the first circle).
Come in to see all our decorations.. we'd love to show you ideas to help you design your own decor for the holidays!
