The Creating Blog Hops Cafe' Our group is here to inspire you every month with many different projects that have been made by some of the most amazing crafters that I know. We are dedicated to be here to inspire you every single month, on the last Saturday of the month, all year long. Whether it be a specific theme, season, or event. So, grab yourself a Latte and hop along with us while we proudly show off our projects to you each and every month. Your first stop along this hop will be with... Robin Lane with Create-A-Latte
Here is my project: 3-D Snowflakes
I made a bunch of these in December to use as decorations and as gift bows, and I continued making more in January for this hop. However this time I used some of the gelli print papers I made as the base papers. I used some one sided printed papers that were just ho-hum to me and brightened them up with some acrylic paints and my gelli plate. Once the papers were dry I cut each 6 x 6 inch square into 1/4 inch wide strips and began weaving and moulding the strips into these snowflakes.
I have posted on my blog in the past on how I made my own gelli plate and I also posted some other snowflakes I had made but with stamps. Please, look back though my posts if you want to see what I did.
I have to say these paper snowflakes are much more appealing to me right now than the real ones! It is sub arctic cold here right now, even for Canada! At least though if it is snowing it is usually warmer!!!!
Stay warm friends and thanks for stopping by.
