Paper Snowflakes (minus the glitter)

There is a new challenge today at Top Tip Tuesday, and the theme to play along with this week is Let it Snow.    I've made a little snowflake decoration to hang on my tree (almost all my tree decorations are white because I like the frosty look of the white ornaments against the green tree).
I made this by die-cutting 6 large snowflakes, folding each one in half and glueing each one to the next one in a circle.  The easiest way was to make 2 sets of 3, and then glue the two halves together.  I used silver embroidery thread and glued that inside before I stuck down the two halves.  

It was really simple to make, but I will let you into a secret:  I did intend to add some glitter, but then promptly forgot before I took the photo and had edited around all those intricate little flakey bits!  

Oh well, hopefully you'll get the idea.  Please just try to imagine it with the glitter, if you wouldn't mind !!!

Our fab sponsors this week are:

  • Papers - er, just plain white card scraps actually
  • Snowflake Die - My Favourite Things
  • Image - erm, none
  • Sentiment - oops, not one of these either
  • Colouring mediums - yikes, not one speck of colour.
  • Nesties - nope, no nestie in sight
  • Cherry Blossom, 10mm & 15mm roses - wot no flowers, what's going on here?
  • Ribbons - nein, nada
  • From my stash - embroidery thread and gli... wait, nope, I forgot the glitter.  Doh!
Please pop on over to the Top Tip Tuesday Challenge Blog to see the other creations by the talented design team, and to enter our challenge.  I look forward to seeing your creations this week.

I've been inspired by:
Happy crafting.

This looks brilliant Netty! :) I also love the simplicity of white. I have one tree in my dining room thats just black baubles and white, and my other tree just has red and white baubles. I like it to look a bit planned! :) lol.

I hadnt thought of making decs for my tree, this is really clever.

Thanks so much for joining us at Sweet Stampin this week,
