Step 1: Gathering supplies!
Patterned paper...not cardstock
tape or adhesive (I use a tape gun)
hot glue gun and lots of sticks of glue!
Silicone pad, mat or trivet
(I use a silicone apple hot pad and just turn it over...)
(scissors, silhouette cameo, stampin up or other
ornament punches or dies)
Tulle, buttons, glitter...any embellishments you'd like!
Step 2: Get Cutting!
I used the Silhouette Cameo...saved so much time cutting!!!
I used a bunch of different shaped ornaments,
Doesn't matter which ones or what size...variety is fun!
Make a spread of ornament shapes and start cutting your patterned paper!
You will need 4 ornaments per shape...4-5 shapes per snowflake...
and 2 different shapes per snowflake
so about 32-40 ornaments per snowflake (16-20 each shape)
(32 for a 4 tipped snowflake, 40 for a 5 tipped snowflake)
This might be sketchy right now, but stay with me and you'll get it!
So, if you don't have a silhouette cameo...
you can use scissors and cut ornament shapes out of paper.
It will just take longer :)
Step 3: Folding and taping!
them in half, patterned side inside.
Here's the basic Taping construction.
Take 4 of the same ornament, folded in.
Run a strip of tape across the top of each.
Carefully stack up 1 on the other...until you've staked 4 ornaments.
Then one strip of tape across the top...and my tape gun is a mess!
Fold around the 2 ends and stick them together!
Pinch tight...It should make it all 3D...and look like an X
These would be darling hanging from a tree branch...but we're taking it further!
Now do that 5 times.
And then 5 more times with a different shaped ornament.
