3-D Snowflake

Hi, today I am sharing with you a  three dimensional paper snowflake ornament that I created for the Get Inky! Stamps By Blue Moon Creation and the blog.  It can also be used as a bow on a gift.




All you need to make these are 12 strips of paper measuring 6 inches by half an inch, cut from a 6 inch square piece of double sided printed paper.  My twist on this is that I chose to use a single sided printed paper (with little snowmen) and I stamped on the white side.  I used the stamps from the Holidays 2013 stamp set from Get Inky! , red and green stamping ink (Stampin' Up!) to make it a double sided paper.
I love this project because it looks a lot more complicated to make then it actually is.  It is a great way to make something pretty with just a few supplies.  The process involves some weaving of the paper strips and little dabs of glue  where connections are made.  I got the idea from another blogger "The Frugal Crafter" where she has a whole video tutorial on how to weave the paper and form the bows/snowflakes.  I just added the stamping.
These are fun to make while watching television and once you get the hang of it they can be addictive.  I warned you!

Have fun and go Get Inky!  Thanks for viewing.
