I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving..and guess what? It’s December!! Oh my goodness…this year will be over before we know it and we’re getting closer and closer to Christmas at a record pace!
I don’t know about you, but I still need to get busy with all my Christmas to-do lists! So, for today’s tutorial I am keeping it REALLY simple and when I say simple, I mean SUPER SIMPLE!
These are some snowflake ornaments that I made for the Sizzix Chapter 4 Holiday release a few weeks ago using the new Fanciful Snowflakes Die Set. It comes with 2 snowflakes..1 large and 1 small.
Here’s a look at them together on a little tree I created with a stick from my yard and an old aluminum jello mold. I thought it would make a really cute centerpiece for a holiday party or winter themed wedding. Or they’re so simple to make you could make a bunch of them and decorate a tree!
To create them I simply cut three of the same size snowflakes then layered them together, with a bit of collage medium and added a few things to bling them up and they were complete!
Here are the quick and easy steps…
Cut three snowflakes out of Distress Watercolor Paper.
Adhere 3 snowflakes together by running a small line of Distress Collage Matte Medium down the center of the snowflakes.
Then sandwich them together and let them dry.
When it’s dry, carefully bend the layers of the snowflake out to create 3D dimension.
In a splatbox, spray the snowflake ornaments with Distress Resist Spray and promptly spritz them with Clear Rock Candy Glitter using a glitter duster.
Embellish snowflakes using idea-ology jump rings, tiny bells, string, and stamps.
See, I told you…super easy peasy!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!

These look so beautiful they would look wonderful hung right through January! The glitter must make them glisten in the light, such a lovely idea and even better that it’s not too hard! I am quite behind in my preparations this year. Thanks so much for sharing Stacy! xx

So pretty. I’ve never tried making 3D by gluing down the middle and bending once dry and set. I’ll give it a go for sure. Thanks.
The snowflakes are beautiful to hang all winter season! Thank you for sharing your technique, it seems easy enough but we’ll see…. Your projects are always so inspirational Stacy.

Please let me know, what material you used in making the snowflakes. Paper stock or material?
Hi Judy! The snowflakes are all cut out of distress watercolor paper 🙂 it’s very stable compared to white cardstock! ♥️
