Holiday Snowflakes- photo tutorial



In my house everything has the possibility to be transformed into something else! I'm pretty confident that given enough time, I can find a second use for just about anything. Neck ties are sewn into necklaces, t-shirts make really cute scrapbook flowers and coffee filters are perfect for holiday snowflakes!

Alaina and I love to use coffee filters, they're already round and super light weight so when we created a garland with them, they almost appeared to floating in the window-sill!



I photographed the steps for making one last week!





Hope you are doing something fun this weekend! I have a little crafty get-together with friends planned for tomorrow but first I think a wee bit of scrapbooking may be in order for today! happy Saturday!

I made some with scrapbook paper this year, but I like the idea of coffee filters -- they're so soft and pretty!

We made this, but before we unfolded them after cutting, we dipped the tips in different colors of food coloring. You have to let them soak up before unfolding them, then lay them on some construction paper and let them air dry. They are beautiful.

What a great idea! I love that they're already round, because that's the hardest part for me. :)
