Hey paper crafter geniuses,
I have a bunch of snowflakes made out of plain old printer paper, and I'd like to hang them from the ceiling this winter.  Not an original idea, I know, but I'm excited about it. 

What I am looking for is something I can do to my snowflakes to make them stiffer, so they will look nice and not fold up on themselves while they're hanging there.  I was hoping to get some ideas/product recommendations before I just head over to Hobby Lobby and start reading the backs of bottles in the glue section.  Bonus points for something that would let me use some of the same ones next year without my snowflakes turning yellow/brown or cracking!

Thank you in advance!

Helmar makes a clear acrylic sealer that I use on my paper crafts (their blog is www.helmarusa.typepad.com)  I know Hobby Lobby carries some of their products.

I have snowflakes that I have hung on the ceiling for years, the design of them will dictate if they will fold, mine didn't..I guess you could paint them with PVA glue (aka modge podge) or what about spraying them with fabric starch, that you use for laundry?
