2012-10-10 Spellbinder’s Lace Doily Motif Snowflake Ornament


Starting with only these supplies I was able to make a lacy looking snowflake.

I took the large square from the Lace Doily set and cut two of them. I ended up removing one corner of one of them in order to make a round snowflake. I scored with my Scor-Pal, pinched and glued so that there were raised sections between the large points. This gave the snowflake stability.

I added some tulle and Christmas tinsel tucking them down to the center of the snowflake. On top of that I added a rosette that had the edge punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. I didn’t worry about lining up the scoring with each peak. There is so much going on no one would ever notice anyway 😉 I added a fancy gold button to the center and glued everything down.

I only had indoor/outdoor ribbon on hand and it is a pain to try and tie a bow with but I made do. Here you see me holding the finished snowflake ornament up. Forgive the sweater/sweatshirt. I work in a basement and it is c-o-l-d down here. I also didn’t have any way to hold up the ornament and get a good picture, so my arm it was.

I’ve been working on this a few days and kept setting it aside as it did not look like it was going to turn out at all. I guess a rosette and tinsel can fix anything?

    It is just beautiful Bonnie. This makes for a great house decoration or an ornament on the tree. I agree that your accessories add lots of interest. Very nice work Bonnie. TFS!!! 😀
