You're a brilliant genius-like crafter for thinking of this!  I always make some paper snowflakes to decorate during the holidays, but I never ever thought to wax them to make them a bit stiffer and colourful.

I shall have to try this tout de suite!

NLJ: I haven't tried yet...This year I think Iwill try and pack them away.  I went a bit over board and made 35 of them and I'm not sure I'd really want to do it all again next year!  Grin

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

hey everyone,
with Elby's permission, I'm posting a stencil I made from her image that shows the cut snowflake - I did this for myself since I'm a bad freehander and figured some other folks who were making these might find it handy.  Grin
