Snowflakes at Try it on Tuesday

Hi All. Thank you for visiting Jumbled Crafts and I hope you are ready for another challenge at Try it on Tuesday where we are thinking Snow, Winter Whites and Snowflakes this time. Hope you join in and let's all have fun in the Snow. If you need any inspiration there are wonderful ideas from my teamies so pop along to TIOT and have a look at them and if possible leave a comment on their blogs.

I made a smaller version of the large paper snowflakes that seem quite popular these days. Vic and me were lucky enough to shown how to make them when we visited Burton Agnes Hall a couple of Christmases ago and a lady there showed us how to make the big ones. There is a tutorial here if you want to have a go. For the three in a row I used 5 cms squares and made 18 of the small parts needed then stuck them together on ribbon.
The decorations were 3 peel offs and a few things from a wreath I bought for £1 at a charity shop. I took the wreath apart and have lots of things I can use for projects. I also added two roses I made out of small pieces of felt
I forgot to take a picture of the original before I used the pieces for decoration on the snowflakes

Have  a great day

Love Chrissie xx

I love these snowflakes and may well follow the link next week! We have a lot going on including a couple of days away at the caravan to make sure everything is OK! The wreath bits and pieces look like a bargain - and the roses make a really beautiful link to the snowflakes! Hugs, Chrisx

I think I saw this idea years ago and planned to make one... still haven't managed yet! Yours look very nice especially with the added embellishments. It's great to have one's very own Christmas decorations.
