When I started seeing all those snow projects coming by here at instructables, I wanted to make something snow related as well. But, it wasn't snowing. I did remember we had this coloured sand, so I searched it and there was also a small container of white sand :D My first idea was to add it to beads, making them look like snowballs, but since the beads were polished, it didn't stay on the way I wanted it to. So I decided to go with a paper snowflake and use paper lacquer to add the sand. When seen from a distance, this just looks like a white snowflake pendant, but when you look closer, you will see crystals all over it. I hope you like it!

Step 1: Materials

To make a snowflake pendant, you will need the following:

- white coloured sand
- thick, white paper
- coloured paper
- scissors
- pencil
- triangle
- glue
- sharp object to make a hole with (I used a steel scribe)
- cord crimp
- cord
- jump ring
- paper lacquer
<p>I love how you used the sand to texture that resembles snow. It is so pretty. Thanks for sharing.</p><p>sunshiine</p>
<p>Thanks, I'm glad you like it!</p>
<p>looks like it's made out of snow! nice.</p>
<p>Thank you so much, I'm glad you like it!</p>
<p>very intricate and beautiful work! nicely done!</p>
<p>Thank you!!</p>
<p>wow..!! this is so cute..well done emily..!! :)</p>
<p>Thank you Faiza!!</p>
<p>This is beautiful Emily! And I don't say it just because I have a weakness for snowflakes :)</p><p>I love the idea of using sand on top! What do you think about doing the same with salt?</p>
<p>Thank you so much Linda! Snowflakes are fascinating, aren't they!</p><p>I think using salt would look great as well, I just don't know how the sand will react with the paper lacquer. </p>
<p>I have no idea, also because I'm not familiar with paper lacquer. I would use the same old white glue :D</p>
<p>The reason that I'm using the paper lacquer is because it also glues (It said on the container it lacks and glues) and it's stronger than usual glue :) But, I think regular glue could work just fine :D</p>
<p>I look forward to try that method when things get better and I will let you know what happens! :D</p>
<p>wow! it looks amazing :) I'm working on a snowflake project too, creepy ha? :D</p>
<p>Thank you Muhaininah! and yes, creepy it is :D</p>
<p>Ah.. How cute is that :), thank you so much for sharing.</p>
<p>Thank you so much Tarun!</p>
