Mounted Hand Cut Snowflakes

My oldest daughter is a master snowflake cutter.

She came up with a great project to mount her little treasures.


Many nights we get together for crafting and this is what my kitchen counter looks like!

Today we are mounting hand cut snowflakes onto 5" x 5" boards.  

We have different styles so it is interesting to see how different our projects came out.

She painted her boards navy blue and grey.

Each snowflake was decoupaged to a board using Modge Podge.

Using the Silhouette we cut out the words frosty and merry
and attached them to each board. 

If you're not a super snowflake cutter you could always cut one on the vinyl cutter or mount a craft store version.

This is what my daughter was doing as I was creating my 
own kind of snowflake plaque.

I also decoupaged my snowflake but mine was onto a small piece of reclaimed wood.

I added rusty barrel strapping around the edges as a frame and hung it from a piece of jute with rusty hardware.

I made a smaller one too with glittered edges.

It is hard to see in the pictures but the snowflake is sprinkled with a dusting of clear glitter.
