Last evening I was reading some blogs, and on Robin's blog, I saw some beautiful victorian snowflake ornaments. There was a link to the blog, joli-paquet where Robin found the ornaments that she made. On the blog there was a wonderful tutorial, and free images of two little girls to use on the ornaments. Lovely!
I knew I had a box full of the plastic snowflake ornaments in the basement. So, downstairs I went, and brought up a few of the snowflakes. I didn't feel like digging for the box of lace, and other embellishments, so I used what was close at hand to make my ornaments. I also don't have glimmer mist or platinum stickles. With a sponge brush, I lightly applied a coat of Delta Ceramacoat Gleams Metallic File Gold, acrylic paint, which is very sheer when applied on paper. For the back, I punched out a circle of scrapbook paper of sheet music design. I added small flowers, and ribbons that I had on hand.
So, this is my version of the Victorian girl snowflakes.
I was happy with my first attempt at creating the ornaments. I want to make more of these to tuck onto Christmas gifts. They were very easy to make and didn't take any time at all. You should give these a try for a fast and easy ornament or gift tag.
