The Snowflake Alteration

We're sharing holiday decor this week over at the 
 So bittersweet as it will be my last project 
as an Imaginisce Design Team member...but a wonderful 
new team has been selected and I'm excited to see what all 
they come up with over the next year!

 I'm a sucker for honeycomb stuffs...you know the tissue paper type
of pretties that you can find to hang from a ceiling or to display as a centerpiece.
I think that they're so whimsical and fun!
So when I ran across this package of three beautifully sculpted snowflakes
at Wal Mart, I just had to put them into the shopping cart :)

 Next, I selected a couple of patterned papers from Christmas Cheer and 
set out to make two layers of pleated medallions.  For the first layer, I cut
two 3" X 12" strips and then scored and pleated at 1/2" increments.

For the bottom layer I cut two 4" X 12" strips and pleated them in the same way.
After both medallions were assembled end-to-end and allowed to dry,
I began layering and embellishing!

I found that the POGO adhesive was the best for adhering the two medallions 
to each other.  Next, add fun die-cuts, ribbon and paper flowers to bring your 
snowflake to life!  
I have this cute little fella hanging from one of my small pine trees beside
the fireplace.  I look forward to creating a couple of non-Christmas ones so
that I can use them throughout the winter months.
