This month’s theme is Holiday gifts. I made this ornament to give to a friend.

Snowflake by Daniela Dobson

Samantha Walker Supplies:
Snowflake

I did, I used one little snowflake file to create this ornament. I resized the snowflake to 3.5 inches tall. I offset the snowflake so that I have a nice outline. I cut three copies of each.

I sprayed the base with Heidi Swapp color shine in Tropicana Teal and the snowflake in Tinsel and a touch of White.

I scored all of them down the middle so they can fold. I adhered the snowflake to the base using Sticky Dot Runner by Therm O Web. That is some strong adhesive. Then, I adhered them to each other so you have three sides to the snowflake.

I think it would look great four of them together, too. I added a pin to the top and bottom, and tied some twine. I love how it turned out. Really easy and beautiful gift for anyone.
