I have watched videos on how to make these paper snowflakes but most of the snowflakes were quite large and the way they were cut seemed like a lot of work. I then came across a wonderful video by Monica Gale which showed a smaller, more delicate snowflake and a much simpler way to create them.
Monica used glue dots which works great but if you are making quite a few you might want to try tacky glue if you have it instead. I put some tacky glue on top of a margarine lid and then let it sit for a bit so it became more tackier and then used a toothpick to transfer the glue to where I needed it and then held it for a few seconds to adhere the pieces together. I used 5 squares that measured 3" by 3" to make the one pictured above.
They were pretty simple to make as her video was quite easy to follow although adhering them all together was a bit fiddly...it worked, but mine just doesn't look as nice as it probably should :-) I just looked at the video again noticed that she has a stamped piece she adhered over the the middle of the snowflake...ahhh, that's what mine is missing :-) Give it a try! You can view Monica's video HERE. Thanks for stopping by!
