  1. I would have never known that this was a bunch of small snowflakes joined to make one big one. What a great idea! I love how sparkly it is!

  2. Love these snowflakes! They would also be pretty strung as bunting or hung from the ceiling. A snowflake wonderland! Love being a part of the tour with so many talented ladies.

  3. I love your snowflakes. Its a fun project and I would use them as gift tags as well.

  4. Hi Paula, I have this snowflake punch (love it). Your idea to make a large snowflake ornament with a little sparkle is terrific!!! I might also use your snowflake as a gift box or wine bottle topper too. So cute!!

  5. Paula, I would never have guessed that you used a snowflake punch to make your ornament! I have a similar punch that I’ve had for years. Now you’ve got me thinking about how I can use it! Pinning your awesome idea!
