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
- sharp object to make a hole with (I used a steel scribe)
- cord crimp
- jump ring
- paper lacquer
Step 2: Draw the snowflake
Start by drawing three lines, crossing each other in the middle to create the six parts of the snowflake (measure 60 degrees between them). I made mine 6 cm.
Next step is totally up to you! Decide how you want to make your snowflake, but keep in mind it has to be cuttable. This is why I changed the shape slightly while working on it, it was too detailed to cut, especially with the thicker paper.
