I've got a fun project to share with you today.....did you know that the new Damask Snowflake Dies are perfect for creating gorgeous 3-D snowflake ornaments?! Their larger scale makes them ideal for putting together ornaments that you can easily hang on your Christmas tree or even give as gifts and the best part is, you can create them in any color you'd like. Not only are the results stunning, but this project is simple enough that you could even create these snowflake ornaments with your kiddos. All you need besides the Damask Snowflake Dies is some card stock, a bit of ribbon, glue and gitter!
I've created two snowflake ornaments to share with you today. For each one, you'll want to die cut 6 snowflakes. As you can see in the photo above, I cut out 6 aqua mist snowflakes and 6 rustic cream snowflakes.
Next, you'll want to score each one down the middle and fold it in half, folding the front side of each snowflake inward.
Once they're all scored and folded, you can glue 3 snowflakes together, back to back. I used a combination of scor-tape and Tombo mono-multi liquid glue for this.
You should then end up with 2 "halves" of a completed 3-D snowflake. When you have your two halves ready to go, adhere a loop of ribbon to the back of one of the snowflake halves with more scor-tape and then glue the two halves together, back to back.
For my ribbon loop, I used some 1/4" white silk ribbon. Lastly, embellish the snowflakes however you'd like. I used my mono-multi liquid glue again, to go around the edges of the snowflakes and then poured on the Martha Stewart glitter.
These snowflakes will look so pretty hanging on our tree this year and the glitter is sure to sparkle in the Christmas lights!
I used more Martha Stewart glitter on the aqua mist snowflake....this time in "white gold" for a bit of a vintage touch.
I hope you've enjoyed today's 3-D snowflake project!
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for stopping by!
