Over the past few months I have been demoing this all over Scotland (and from what I gather Ireland have liked this one too!)....
This is the finished snowflake.......
And this is how you make it....
You will need 9 large squares and 10 smaller squares (if you wanted to have a thinner snowflake then only do one of the layers). I have used this xcut die to give it a decorative edge, you could used a border punch if you preferred.
Take each square and score from the bottom corner to the middle of the opposite two edges. Use this picture as a reference guide.
Crease these lines - make the pattern on the inside as is shown on the above photo.
When you have done this on all the squares, stick them together.
I use a pva glue and I hold them together with paperclips until they are dry.
If you are in a hurry, you can use double sided tape.
Continue until you have completed both snowflakes.
Remove the paperclips and fold over the edges so they lie flatter. Place the smaller snowflake over the top of the larger on and hold in place with a large brad.
You could also use silicone glue and a paper disk.
This one I made using vellum..... isn't it pretty.....
I hope you like this little tutorial.
I'd love to see your version of these, remember to stop by and leave me a link to your blog so that I can any you make.
