Festive Flurries - MOJO323

With all the snow we've had over the past couple days, I was inspired to make some more snowflakes myself! I love these snowflakes made with the Festive Flurry bundle - they're so delicate, and though they take a bit of effort (and coordination) to put together, they're worth it! I created this card using the MojoMonday sketch from this week:

To put the snowflake together, after cutting the snowflake out with the Framelits, you first need to punch (or cut) a small circle in the centre. Then fold your snowflake pieces back and forth, alternating with each tip/indentation. I found it easier to fold all the tips inward and then flip the whole snowflake upside down and fold the indentations inward (so that they are alternating).

Then you need a big glob of hot glue to go in the centre of the snowflake...and then hold! The longer you hold on the glob of glue, the more likely it'll stay in place. Watch this video to see more (it's not quite as easy as the video makes it seem, but once you've done two of them, they're much easier!)

Once you've folded/glued all your layers individually, you just stack them and glue them together - I put one of the beautiful Frosted Finishes embellishments on the top for a stunning look! You can make ornaments similar to these without the Framelits and stamp set, by ordering the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit (while supplies last).
