Snowflake Ornaments

I first admired these snowflake ornaments over at Robin's Nest.  Then when I passed some of the snowflakes yesterday in Walgreen's I picked up a pack to experiment with.



I found I had to use a glue gun to adhere my round artwork to the snowflakes because of all the glitter.  I also found since the snowflakes are so sparkly I preferred it without the glitter around the circle.
But I think they are so pretty.....and I am off to make some more!

Oh yes, these are delightful! The combination of your gorgeous vintage collages with the bit of sparkly snowflake is perfection. I'm thinkin' I need to go to Walgreens now, too! ;)

Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my daughter's blog post, too - she was thrilled!

I love how your ornaments turned out Louise!!! I'm glad your glue gun worked....I ended up using E6000 because of all that glitter. I'm still finding glitter on everything....how about you??

Hugs,

Beautiful ornaments! I think it was a great thought to not add any glitter to the images. I wonder if giving the snowflakes a quick spray with a sealer would help keep the glitter well behaved?? Happy Holidays!
