The Snowflake Project

DSC_5380

Happy Day After Christmas! I hope you all are enjoying the bliss of the holiday after-glow!   It has been a whirl wind, but I loved watching my kids in the magic of it all!

Today I am going to share a project I made for a project  for the decorations for the new Sandy Hook Elementary School.  The goal is to get crafters to make snowflakes and mail it to them so they can use it for the Winter Wonderland theme they are going to use.  Click HERE for all the details.

I found a simple Silhouette image and cut it out at around 5 inches on chipboard.  I then punched a hole at the top of one point with my Crop-A-Dial.  After that I applied Glastique Matte and then dusted with Piccolo Pure Sparkle Silver Glitter. I shook off the excess and repeated on the opposite side once dry.

I ran some ribbon through the hole and packaged it up and sent it out to be part of the many that will hang to greet the students that endured so much just two weeks ago.  My prayers are with them, their families, the community and those that were directly effected by the tragedy.

To check out more about the glitter used in this project, please head over to Globecraft & Piccolo’s blog to see my product highlight.

Thanks for sharing a piece of “there is no snowflake alike” pie with me.

I am a stay at home domestic engineer that has a love for my family, food, writing, crafting, photography and most of all a clean and orderly house. I feel I was born in the wrong era in many things and the only thing I would change if I was a "Donna Reed or June Cleaver" kind of mom is that I would still get to wear my sweats and Crocs while washing the windows.

  6. This is really a quick-and-easy holiday project. The dough can be cut into a variety of shapes and decorated in a number of ways. They would make great little gift tags on packages, too!
