I'm glad that you all like them!! I think I might add some glitter and call them done. (And if I have left over snowflakes, I'm making gift tags! Woo-hoo!
) Thanks for all the compliments, guys. You're great!
a little bit of glitter would be a nice touch, but they are in no way plain! i looove the santa one, its so neat. can i try your idea? how did you cut such perfect snowflakes?
i really love them
Sure, you can do it, too. But I gotta warn you that it takes a while. I made a stencil out of some thick paper and traced it onto the card I wanted to use. Then I got out my trusty exacto and cut it out. I used a hole punch on the scraps for the dots. It probably took me about 15 min to do each snowflake (I did 4 different patterns, and the time was a bit different for each one.) So 15 min x 120 snowflakes = I have no life.
After doing the first bunch I realized that a die cutter would be so perfect for these, but that's a bit too pricey for me. It actually wasn't so bad because I gave myself a lot of time for the cutting. I did most of it while watching movies and stuff over the summer.
