Embellishing Snowflakes Tuitorial

CTMH has outdone themselves this season with these beautiful Dimensional Element snowflakes! They are beautiful...and when decorated, no two are the same! I have used these snowflakes to adorn trees, gift packaging, cards, and much more! The snowflakes add that simple, final touch to gift packaging and gift giving this holiday season!

1. To begin, punch out the
snowflakes from the carrier sheet.

2. Using the finishing files, sand down the little "knobs"
left by the carrier sheet.

3. Use an fingertip sponge dauber, and ink of choice,
to color the snowflake.
For white flakes, skip this step.

4. Ink the entire snowflake with the color.

5. Cover the snowflake with Bonding Memories Glue.
This should be used graciously.

6. Position the snowflake over an enclosed container,
or wax paper, and cover the snowflake
with Prisma Glitter.

7. Lightly spray the snowflake with aerosol hairspray
to seal the glitter.
The more inexpensive the hairspray,
the better (as due to the higher alcohol content).

Experiment with the amount of color,
and shading for even more unique designs.

Supplies used:
Dimensional Element Flurrys
Finishing Files
Sponge Daubers
Exclusive Inks
Bonding Memories Glue
Prisma Glitter
