Lights and Snowflakes

The two hour drive north last Sunday was night sky and strings of white lights over Christmas tree lots. Firs clustered under red and white striped tents, propped against fences, tall, full, narrow or flocked. In every city we passed. It's that time of year. Here at A Field Journal holiday things are getting underway. The first project of the season is one I created for Papermash. Winter whites, warm light and the most intricately patterned doilies I've ever seen - need I say more? You can download the nifty instructional .pdf for these Snowflake Votives at Papermash through January. Just note you'll need to use battery tea lights for these.

Can you tell us how you make the adorable newsprint snowflake?

Livy said...

Hi Christine - I am hoping to do some posts about homemade ornaments and incorporate those in it. The short how-to is basically: accordion fold a small square of paper. Once you done that snip each end into a point. Then fold in half and fan out each side into a circle and secure with glue. Hopefully I'll be able to create a better tutorial with photos once final exams are over with (one week to go!)
