16 days of snowflakes

There are loads of sites that have instructions on how to make paper snowflakes, I just googled snowflakes and found great directions.  I've included links to a few of the patterns used to make these snowflakes.   

 6 sided new year snowflake started things off for 2016.



day 1



I used homemade spray paint to color this sparkling blue flake.




day 2


Here is a pretty small snowflake cut with and X-Acto knife because scissors could not cut through thick paper layers.  




day 3




I sprayed this large snowflake with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Rouge once it was cut.  



day 4



This really big flake was made with a sheet of deli paper, which was almost too easy to cut.



day 5



A silver snowflake cut from tea bag packet, I love the shine on this one.




day 6



Here's a macro shot of this pretty purple snowflake.  



day 7



Uneven snowflakes are fun and real, this one looks like it has bear claws all around it.  



day 8



More hearts and a bit more intricate cutting done on a piece of old book paper, which is very fragile and tears as it is cut... 




day 9



Several hearts here and fun mustaches too appeared in this 4 sided flake.



day 10



I made an artist trading card with snowflakes cut from Sno-Caps candy box because they caught my attention and I love recycling. ski dreams



day 11


This is an art journal page done with homemade rubber stamps made for #carvedecember



day 12



Here is a ginormous 3D blue snowflake that looks so cool hanging in our kitchen window with this snowy background.



day 13



My first  8 sided snowflake and so far it is my favorite!  It's golden glow comes from Perfect Pearls Mists of sunflower sparkle.  



day 14



Here's a four sided green snowflake, what you don't have green ones where you live?  More homemade spray paint used on this beauty.



day 15



A piece of mono printed paper got folded and cut into this 8 sided flake, which I like but is definitely not even close to symmetrical. 



day 16
