Lara's Crafts - Wooden Snowflake
Plaid-FolkArt Metallic Silver Paint
Coats Brand Metallic Silver Thread
My Minds Eye Brand Turquoise Bling
Adhesive: Aleene's Tacky Glue
Step 1: Paint the edges of the wooded snowflake - set aside to dry about 1 minute. * Note: if you do not like using paint you can color your edges with a Metallic Silver Sharpie.
Step: 2 Using the Rinea 3D Rolled Star Die or Stars N More Templates to die cut 2 star maker shapes from Starstruck Turquoise. Using the handle of your paintbrush curl the circle edges as indicated on the back of the package. The best part of the Rinea Foil paper is that it holds its shape - but if you prefer you can add a tiny bit of glue. Set aside.
Step 4: trace the snowflake on to the Starstruck Silver foil paper trim and adhere to the wooden snowflake. Repeat this for the other side.
Step 5: Assembly of the snowflake - Start by cutting apart one of the rolled stars. Then, adhere the little cones onto the back of the wooden snowflake. *Note: you can use a glue gun and glue sticks for this process if you prefer unless creating this project with children. Next, cut a length of the silver thread - about 8 inches; then fold in half and tie off one end. Adhere it to the snowflake(this will be your hanger) try to center it.
Step 6: Now, place the other rolled star onto the snowflake - this is the back of the snowflake. Make sure that the points go in between the others.
Step 7: Finishing touches: Now, turn you snowflake over and add a jewel to the center. Your snowflake is complete and ready to hang on your tree, gifts, anywhere that you want to decorate.
Look at the shine!
