I love the snowflakes in the new martha stuart kids mag. They ironed the paper flat after they were finished and made them into ornaments. They look great. I also love the wreaths made of ice, but that will only work if you live somewhere cold. I live in North TX, and although we see freezing temps about once a week, that isnt enough to sustain an ice wreath.

Zephren, I agree, I also love those ice ornaments and wreaths!  Totally fun!  I live in Houston, and we never have ice, so if I wanted to make that kind of stuff, I would just make it in my freezer and hang it on my tree outside and let it melt. 

I also used another idea from MS Kids last weekend to AWESOME result.  The mag had round cut-outs of christmas cards sewn together in a garland, but I used felt pieces (rectangles, or whatever shape came out), bits of ribbon, and bright colored paper  and sewed them together on my sewing machine.  It was GREAT.

I will probably post another thread and a photo tute for the garland.
