met monday-creating snowflakes

I love snowflakes and I found a site that lets you print out the design. It has a bunch of different ones --more than what I have done! You print them out and it gives you the fold lines and the cut lines. I was just going to try one , BUT it was toooooooooo much fun. There is something so magical about the transformation of a folded piece of paper into a neato design!! I had to do more and this was late at night. I am feeling a bit like a kid again!!! ANY ways go here to get the free print outs-JUst click on the word here and it brings you to the site Or (http://quackshack.blogspot.com/2008/11/avalanche.html

--this would be fun on windows, trees, tablescapes etc.......and if you have more ideas let me know!!!

For other creative ideas and transformation join others at Susan's on Monday! (my post is about transforming paper to snowflakes so I think it is ok, but I didn't take a before pic)

  7. I love those. I would like to do it with a nice shiny cellophane paper but I don't think you can even make a proper cut on those papers.

  22. Such a cool idea! I'm heading over to that link asap. My boys will love doing these! :)

    You asked me about the cake stencil. Unfortunately I got it in a scrapbook Fall kit several years ago. But I think you can find something similar at craft stores.

  23. PS I wonder if you can use these snowflakes for cake stencils with powdered sugar??

  25. Hi! Aw, I love paper snowflakes. I wanted to make some mini ones and hang them on some branches in a big vase this year, but I doubt I'll get around to it:(

  27. I can remember making these and yes, they are so much fun. They are like Lays potato chips, can't make just one!!

    In answer to your question about the expoxy I used on my cloche, yes it dried clear as the glass itself!!
