The other day I saw a picture of a crocheted ice-crystal garland from Martha Stewart.
I loved the look of it but since I don't crochet, it got me thinking. Could I make this with paper? So I got out my trusty Art Philosophy cartridge and started playing around. This is what I came up with:
I used some white cardstock and some patterned paper from our Wonderland paper. I edged the outside of each white snowflake with Twilight. I then added some prisma glitter to give it some sparkle and a little extra dimension. I don't know that you can really see the glitter. I used some white brads to connect the snowflakes. Here are some close-up pictures of the garland:
I think I'm going to add some more snowflakes to the ends of the garland so that they hang down either side.
If you're interested in making this, I cut the snowflakes at 4" and 5 1/2". I used the snowflake images on page 22: A2 < Snwflke1 > and shift/layer/< Snwflke1 >.
I hope you're having as much fun getting ready for the holidays as I am!
Have a wondeful day!
