Paper Crafting Tip #17: Use your scrapbook supplies to make a 3D paper snowflake.

Happy Holidays everyone!  Well, it's that time of the year again.  Time to deck those halls, fa la la la la.  But instead of boughs of holly, try this 3D snowflake.  Don't let the instructions intimidate you.  It's really easier than it looks or sounds.  I used medium-weight 6 x 6 squares to make this one.  Although I used some really cool Christmas scrapbook paper from Die Cuts With A View, you can use almost any paper.  I used tacky glue instead of staples, except for the innermost connections on the snowflake. There I did use the staples.  Have fun with this, and email me photos of your creations.  I'd love to post them here. 

Oh, before I forget, here's an update on the Crafty Girls Swap Group (Check my blog entry for last week).  So far, there are 5 people who have expressed an interest.  By Wednesday, Dec. 5th, I will send an email with further details to everyone who has responded.  If you're interested in joining, please email me or post a comment here by December 5.

Enjoy your week!
