Snowflake Ornament

Hi everyone!

Welcome to new release day at Heartfelt Creations!  Today we are debuting the Snow Kissed Collection and I am sure you are going to just love it!

Bring out the softer side of old man winter in all of your projects with the new “Snow Kissed” Collection by Heartfelt Creations.  An exquisite blending of classic winter scenes depicting gentle snowfalls, candle lit windows, countryside sleigh rides mixed with a sprinkling of fun filled images of frosty snowmen delivers the perfect compilation of winter themed imagery for all of your holiday and chilly season creations.  This newest collection features three cling stamp sets revealing illustrations of towering pine trees and frosty snowmen ideal for creating spectacular winter scenes, a large gift tag perfect for adding that special handmade touch to all of your beautifully wrapped gifts, as well as a wide variety of snowflakes which when paired with the coordinating dies will allow you to build one of a kind dimensional flakes as realistic and individual as those in a gentle snowfall.  The charming paper collection showcases beautiful hues of cozy blues and rich pine greens accented with deep burgundies creating exquisite backdrops to showcase patterns of elegant snowflakes, windswept swirls, playful polka dots and beautiful brocades resembling those found on a cozy handmade quilt.  And, this unique collection brings with it a special surprise…a small gift box die ready to be cut, assembled and embellished, making packaging smaller gifts quick and easy during the busiest time of the year!  So, grab your quilt, cozy on up in your craft room and join us as we bring just a kiss of snow to your craft table….we promise no shoveling required!

I am excited to show you a fun little ornament that you can create to decorate your tree or even give as a gift!

Project Instructions:

Other products:  Glitter Paper, Versamark, Super Fine White embossing powder, Ribbon from my stash and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by cutting the outside piece of the large snowflake die out of paper from the Snow Kissed Paper Collection six times followed by the inside piece another six times out of glitter paper.  Fasten the 2 pieces together, repeating until all 6 are together and scor down the middle of all six pieces.  Next you will fasten 1/2 of the snowflake to 1/2 of another snowflake repeating until all but the last two half’s are glued.  Take a piece of ribbon or string and making a loop place the 2 ends into the center of the snowflakes and glue the last two pieces together.  I also stamped the snow flakes from the Snow Flakes Stamp and Cling Set on plain green cardstock with Versamark and heat embossed with super fine white embossing powder and then glued the snowflakes in random fashion to the large snowflake.  Finally, attach some festive ribbon and a beautiful tag from the lovely paper collection to finish it off.  Have fun 🙂

Thanks so much for visiting.  Have a wonderful day!

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
