Snowflake Tags

 Snowflake tag0
I have been making snowflake tags for my packages. I am trying to use what I have and not buy. They turned out really well. I call them snowflakes because each one is a bit imperfect (thanks to my cutting and painting dot skills) and each snowflake is different.
Plus I am not going to let the fact that I can not cut perfect circles slow me down ;-)

What you need :

cardstock

different sized cup, to make different sized circles

edged scissors, I used Victorian

fine tipped paintbrush

paint and/or glue and glitter

Lightly trace circles on card stock and cut out circles using edged scissors.

Using the scalloped edge as a guide, make dots of paint or glue, then glitter.

Doing tiny dots is easy. I just learn to let the brush slowly drop down of the paper (while I am holding it ;-) instead of pushing it down on the paper. Hope that makes sense. Let me know if you make any !!!!

I love this idea too Clarice, and I hope you don't mind that I adapted it! We used a saucer instead of a cup and computer paper. The resulting snowflakes were perfect tied down as lid covers for the jams and chutneys I made for our church Christmas bazaar. The jars looked so sweet with the patterned edging and glittery dots. It was way cheaper than cutting up two yards of holiday fabric and the children could contribute their labour to our donation as well. Thank you! Gill.

What a lovely Idea. I love that you used a tea cup inverted for your circle. I hope you had a cup as you made them.I have a cup of Peppermint beside me now .
