Want2Scrap: How to make a Snow Flake

I love adding a touch of "homemade" to a store bought gift! A fun altered box for a gift card or a great holiday tag on a bottle of is always nice to let the recipient know you put a little time into their gift. I made a few fun snowflakes for this holiday tag and wanted to share with you how I did them.

First gather your supplies:

Next, paint your chipboard snowflakes and allow them to dry.

Next, add your Want2Scrap™ bling.

Now add a good layer of a strong adhesive. Beacon's 3-in-1 works great!

Finally add some glitter or crushed glass and allow to dry.

What a great way to add a little sparkle to your gift.

And a few details...

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with lots of love and sparkle!

Scarlet Lime, Looking Forward...

These beautiful kits and all the goodies from the Mixed Media Shop certainly put me in the holiday spirit. The December Main Kit has me digging into these gorgeous papers and I scrapped my favorite picture of the holiday season so far. I took this photo at Longwood Gardens and just loved it. The sun shining into the conservatory hit the tree perfectly for a gorgeous photo.

The December Frugal Fab Kit is just fun! I used a picture of my this layout. I also used some goodies from the store like Liquitex Inks and Distressed Ink Pads. Lets not forget the Crafters Workshop Templates or the Faber-Castell India Ink Pens. They work perfectly with these kits.
