Snowflake ornaments 6–9

snowflake ornament 6

Feed Dog FlurryI was delighted to find cheap packs of felt snowflake ornaments at Target—they make great bases for embellishing with further snowflake paraphernalia. The one above is that felt base with a snowflake die-cut from Sizzix’s Snowflake Layered die, a felt snowflake sticker (details here), and self-stick rhinestones in silver and aqua. (By the way, please excuse the wonky lighting and shadows—using the flash was the only way to get the white flakes to show up against the white walls and ceiling.)

Same idea with this one, but the felt sticker is under a six-pointed star cut with the Sizzix Snowflake, Hanging 3-D #2 die (apparently discontinued). The star is then topped with a snowflake flat. The little bits of aqua felt where the punch-outs left over from the sticker in the middle.

Clearly I got a lot of mileage out of those felt stickers. I used glitter glue to detail this ornament, but I kind of think it looks a little primary-school-ish as a result. What do you think?

The base flake for this one is a bit different, and that’s because Michaels also had packs of felt snowflake blank with a different shape than the Target ones. I left the points of the flake alone since they were fairly beefy, and used the Snowflake Layered die again with yet another felt sticker and a rhinestone—this time one shaped like a snowflake.

With a few flake bases left and a fresh pack of felt stickies, I could whip up another batch before bed tonight…but perhaps I need to put the craft supplies away and just go to sleep already.
