Quilled snowflake Christmas cards


After making those big ornaments quilled snowflakes, I thought I'd make these small snowflakes for card accents. These are A2 cards and as you can see there are still plenty of space on the card so these snowflakes are pretty small.  No, they were not hard to make.  At first I thought it would be harder then the bigger ones since the pieces are smaller but I was surprised how easy it was to make these smaller ones.  I guess it was because the strips are shorter so it rolled faster and it was easier to assemble them.

I decided to add some glitter.  I used spray adhesive and dipped the snowflake in the diamond glitter.  The glitter didn't stick well so I painted clear finger nail polish on top.  This used of finger nail polish was inspired from a very talented, Marilynn  McGyver.  Check out her awesome creations here.
 Here is another one.  The same snowflake just different color and different layout with old retired designer paper.
 Thank you for stopping by again.  Have a lovely day.

Helen, these are so pretty. I love the diminutive snowflakes. The glitter looks fabulous. Who knew we would need fingernail polish in our supply drawers?
