Cutting Paper Snowflakes
You sometimes have questions. I know I do. When this happens and you think I might be of some service, do as Bridgitt did and shoot me an email. You never know, I just might be able to help. I was reading through the junkmail snowflake garland post and was amazed at the snowflakes you cut out. I blush... To make snowflakes, here's what I do: 1. 5. 9. 10. So... Alrighty then.

Snowflake Ornaments coffee filters! But they've been stiffened to make them more rigid and ornament like. And as an added bonus the fabric stiffening medium I used gave the filters a semi-translucent icy look. As you probably already know I love to craft with coffee filters. Now you've probably seen more than one tutorial on how to cut snowflakes from coffee filters so I'm just going to give you a brief overview of those steps. Step One: First smooth the filter out so it's flat. Step Two: Use a craft knife to cut the folded filter. I made some cuts along the edges and inside the middle to get a really detailed and delicate looking flake. After you're done cutting unfold to reveal your beautiful flake. Next it's time to stiffen the filters up with fabric medium. Step Three: Lay the snowflake on some wax paper, pour on some drops of fabric medium, and smooth the medium over the entire filter. Step Four: Carefully pick up/peel up the flake and transfer it to something plastic to dry.
