- I used 1 1/2 sheets of 12" x 12" corrugated paper
- Hot glue
- Paper cutter or scissors
- Hot glue gun
- Triple Thick Embossing
You will need to cut the following pieces from corrugated paper:
1 - 12" x 6" pieces of corrugated paper
2 - 6" x 6"
4 - 4" x 3"
16 - 2" x 3"
2 - 1" circles
Tightly roll your cut pieces with the ridges horizontal and hot glue the end.
(I had a piece of parchment paper on my work table and once I added the hot glue I pressed the rod down on the paper until cooled to prevent from burning my fingers).
Next, I hot glued the 6" pieces to the 12" piece, pressing the rods firmly against each other until cool. And then glued each of the 4" rods in between.
At first I glued a star-like pattern on the center where the rods met for stability, but after I glued the shorter rods on, I didn't like the way it looked and it also prevented me from wrapping the rods neatly with twine so I took them off.
Glue your shorter rods on making sure you space them evenly and in the same direction.
I took some jute twine apart (very messy) and wrapped individual strands around each rod for a rustic look and stability and added a loop on one end for hanging and then glued round circles to the center, front and back.
And finally, to give the snowflake a bit of sparkle, I painted Triple Thick embossing enamel onto the surface and sprinkle white glitter over it.
Looks really pretty hanging.
I also found metallic foil corrugated paper that made a cute "glammy" snowflake.
I added glitter balls on the ends and sprinkled glitter where the rods came together.
As you can see the possibilities for designing and creating snowflakes using corrugated paper are unlimited.
Have fun with making yours!
Take a little time to enjoy
Happy Holiday Crafting!
