Christmas Embellishments Day 6 Snowflakes

Christmas Embellishments Snowflakes
by Tracy

All of these can be added to your layouts or cards minus the pegs

Tie a double star charm with Bakers Twine and add “hanging” rhinestones

Apply stickles or kindy glitz onto the felt star

For the left photo I added rhinestones

and the right photo has organza ribbon tied to a jump ring

and here are some other examples ...

Lime Green Stickles on our Black Embossed Felt Stars

Cinnamon Stickles on our brown felt stars hanging from our Brown Acrylic Chain

and more quick and easy star ideas ...

Cut out a piece of corrugated cardboard and paint with Picket Fence Crackle Paint.

Ink edges with Peeled Paint

Tie a double star charm with bakers twine around the painted star

Applying dimensional magic or a quick drying liquid glue to the peg

Sprinkle Glitter over glue

Once dry, adhere 3 textured metal stars

Cut out a star from cardboard (I used one of our felt stars for a template)

Coat with Dimensional Magic or other quick drying liquid glue and spinkle with Diamond Dust

Add button tied with matching bakers twine

And so what am I doing with all these embellishments that I have made, apart from obviously adding them to my layouts?

They are all on bakers twine to hang my Christmas Cards from ...

Sorry about the shocking photo ... the weather is terrible here for photos but I am sure you get the idea
See ya tomorrow :)
