SHABBY SNOWFLAKE FLOWERS

Hi everyone…this is a super easy flower to make for holiday projects

Supplies:
Chipboard snowflakes
White Acrylic Paint (I love the dabber it is so easy to use)
Gems
Snowflakes cut from white cardstock
Brown Chalk Ink
Stickles
Glimmer Mist

 Step One:
Paint your chipboard piece and set aside to dry.

Step Two:
I cut my snowflakes with my cricut to start... in a few different sizes. Now I ink around the edges of all the snowflakes.

Step Three:
Ink around the chippy snowflake and add a gem to the center of it. I have bent up and crinkled the snowflakes before putting them together. This will add some dimension to them.

Step Four:
Layer your snowflakes and glue them together.

Step Five
To finish off the snowflakes I have added some stickles to them, some clear and some gold, and then I spayed them with some light colored glimmer mist to make them shimmer.  

That is it, so easy and fast. These are very vintage looking on holiday heritage layouts. Here is a little peek of an upcoming project with one on it.
