SnowFlake Ornament

We at ScraPerfect have a wonderful opportunity to create with The Robin's Nest products! They have an array of paper crafting products that will inspire you to get your craft on!

I am using my favorite embellishment - Dew Drops! Using Under the Sea Dew Drops, I made a simple snowflake ornament with their Ocean Blue Glitter Cardstock paper and Spellbinders™ 2012 Snowflake Pendant die templates.

SnowFlake Ornament by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Glittered Cardstock: The Robin's Nest (Ocean Blue Glitter Cardstock); Die: Spellbinders Paper Arts (S5-117 2012 Snowflake Pendant); Embellishment: The Robin's Nest (Under The Sea Dew Drops); Tools and Adhesive: ScraPerfect (the Embellie Gellie, the Perfect Crafting Pouch and the Best Glue Ever); Other: Silver Cord

First I cut S5-117 2012 Snowflake Pendant die three times with Ocean Blue Glitter Cardstock. Tip: when using a delicate die like this put wax paper between the die template and paper for easy release. I used the pointed end of the Embellie Gellie to help release the paper from the die.

With the Best Glue Ever's fine tip, I can use a three - four drops of glue and spread them on the back of the die cut with ease. You don't need much when using the Best Glue Ever. Tip: make sure to shake the glue to the tip before applying (don't forget to keep that cap on...just sayin' - wink wink).

When the glue dried, I had some tackiness on the edges so I took out my Perfect Crafting Pouch and tap the edges and problem gone! Next, I placed my Dew Drops with the Embellie Gellie and if I didn't like the way it was placed, I use the pointed end to push over the Dew Drop to where I like it. Love that pointed end! LOL!

Using the blue and clear Dew Drops makes it a perfect embellishment for this project! Note the Best Glue Ever will dry CLEAR so use it on any of your clear or opaque embellishments :0)

This is the side view - I embellished both sides and here's a second look at the ornament on my still bare tree! LOL! Another idea is to add this to your gift decor like a gift bag or present...many ideas.

Hope you enjoyed this simple and quick project! Time is a commodity during the holidays! THANK YOU to The Robin's Nest for providing such wonderful products!!

Sweet & Simple! Great tip about using the Perfect crafting Pouch as a stickiness de-activator.

Margie-- Also the wax paper tip for releasing the delicate diecut--I'd been told by a retailer last year that they used the pouch on paper before cutting and it worked to release the detailed diescuts...have you tried it???
