Snowflake Banner by Steph

Posted on December 19 2017

Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with a new banner celebrating winter.  It's getting colder and snow is definitely on it's way.  I used the new Frosty Foiled Paper Variety Pack.  Since this is a seasonal collection, I am also going to link to the individual foiled papers I used from this collection.

I found this chipboard book, and when I looked closer, I realized I could easily turn it into a banner   Foiled Paper cuts wonderfully with any die cutting equipment and I used Spellbinders Grand Circle Dies to die cut  Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.

Next, I used Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper to die cut 4 large snowflakes.  Using an older, not so tacky Cricut mat, I taped the foiled paper to the mat then loaded it into my Cricut.

I set my Pressure to medium and Speed to high and hit cut.  Look at the crisp, clean snowflakes I was able to cut with my Cricut.

I like to remove the die cut images first.  Then I remove the rest of the foiled paper from the Cricut mat and put it aside for another project.  I try to use all the scraps of foils that remain.

To add some dimension to each snowflake, I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss tiny dots on each one.

Using left over scraps from the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled paper, I created the tops of the ornaments.

I die cut circles from Turquoise/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper and adhered them to the snowflakes with foam adhesives for dimension.   Using the left over Silver/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper from the snowflake die cuts, I die cut the letters and adhered them to the circles.    

I punched holes in each piece then joined them all together with ribbon.
