Connie Crystal crystals, beads
Miscellaneous adhesive of choice, white cardstock, wire
Step 1 Spray white cardstock with Sheer Shimmer Spritz Sparkle.
Step 2 Once dried, overspray with GooseBumps Shimmer Texture Spray to desired texture. Allow to dry completely.
Step 3 Apply Memento Summer Sky direct to paper.
Step 4 Mist paper towel with Ink Potion No. 9 and then wipe across paper to remove ink from the texture created from the GooseBumps.
Step 5 Spray Fireworks! Summer Sky across paper; wipe excess Fireworks off with paper towel.
Step 6 Repeat for a total of 2 sheets of 8-½˝ x 11˝ white cardstock (yields 12 die cut pieces).
Step 7 Die cut a total of twelve snowflakes using the large (#5) snowflake die from the 2013 Snowflake Pendant set.
Step 8 Using the #2 circle from the Media Mixage Circles Three die set, cut the middle from the snowflakes.
Step 9 Die cut two of #1 snowflake from the 2013 Snowflake Pendant Set from Vertigo Taffeta, utilizing the Metal Shim plate to cut the Vertigo easily.
Step 10 Fold all die cut snowflake pieces in half.
Step 11 Apply adhesive (liquid glue works great) onto one of the folded halves of the first snowflake, then press half of the next snowflake piece onto this to adhere together. Hint: to save time, run the pieces through a Xyron sticker machine while folded in half.
Step 12 Continue adhering snowflakes together until all die cut snowflakes have been attached.
Step 13 Apply liquid adhesive up the middle of one of the die cut Vertigo pieces, from tip to tip. Adhere to the wire.
Step 14 Repeat for the second Vertigo snowflake, aligning the points of the snowflakes.
Step 15 Lay the wire into the spine of the ornament with the Vertigo snowflake in the circular die cut opening.
Step 16 Apply adhesive to the remaining exposed snowflake and adhere together.
Step 17 Add crystals to the top and bottom of the ornament to add bling.
Step 18 Create a topper for hanging the ornament.
