Create a 3D Snowflake Ornament - Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share the project that I made last night during my YouTube Live.  During the Live I shared how to make a 3D Snowflake Christmas Ornament using one sheet of 6" x 6" designer series paper.  You could make so many different types of these fun festive ornaments with all the designer series papers that we have between the 2021-2022 Annual Catalog and the July-December Mini Catalog.

Let it Snow Scandinavian Star Ornament Home Decor Piece Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute home decor piece that's super easy to make and actually quick.  One other thing that is great about this project is you can use up some of that Designer Series Paper you may have on hand or in your stash.  I saw this on a video and in industry magazine recently and just had to try it.  I have been making the smaller version of the Scandinavian Star Ornaments for one of our Christmas Trees.  We have a few different trees that we put up every year, you can see past Christmas Open House photos by doing a search in the search bar.  If not I will try to come back and try to link it from a couple years ago.  We decided this year to create a tree with handmade ornaments, so I am super excited to see it completed.  Anyway here's a look at my home decor piece.

Tips & Tricks: 

This project only takes 12 1" x 12" strips to make.  So you can make a lot of them with one pack of DSP.  Once you have your Designer Series Paper cut into the strips you are going to take six of them and weave together.  You start with three stripes and weave the other three together.  Once all together you are going to turn it into an x and then glue the two closes strips together as shown on the video.  You are going to repeat this all the way around and repeat with the other six stripes.  
Once both stars are constructed you are going to put both together.  To secure both stars together you are going to weave the leftover strips into the curls and secure with glue.  To finish it off you are going stamp and color one of the snow men from the stamp set or whatever you decided to put on the inside.  Color it with coordinating colors and layer together with dimensionals.  Attach to the center of the put together stars with a little liquid glue.  Create a hole at the top and add your ribbon.  Make a loop for the top and a bow to add a little pretty.  At this point you are ready to hang.

I hope that you have enjoyed this project and that I have inspired you a little to try this at home.  This would make a great decoration for any season by changing up the paper.  Thanks for dropping by I will see you again very soon.
