Beautiful snow will be glistening at our doors before long. Come and enjoy a SnowFlake Blog Hop using the limited edition double stamp set, thinlets, embellishments and design series paper.
This is for all my craft fair ladies that are always looking for new designs. This can be a Christmas ornament or a trinket box. I have join together the Window Box Thinlits and Snowfall Thinlits creating this 3 D box. Now I am getting ready for some winter weather. (Well, just not too cold.)
As you can see, with just a small light inside this ornament comes to life. Here is a picture with the light off.
Snowflake Blog Hop Project
As my craft fair crafters often tell me, it is important the projects be sturdy. After all they go through a ton of traveling before they reach their final home.
What you will need:
- Pool Party card stock 8 1/2 x 11,
- Vellum 8 1/2 x ll
- Scrap pieces of silver glimmer sheets.
- Scrap Pieces of Spark Glimmer sheets.
- Snow Fall Thinlets
- Window Box Thinlets
- Whisper White and Silver Bakers Twine 6″
- Whisper White satin ribbon 12″
- Multi liquid glue
- Adhesive Sheets
- Tear & Tape
- Big Shot
- Precision Plate
- Cut out 2 of the Window Box from Pool Party and 2 from Vellum. The vellum will add extra body to your ornament or trinket box. Plus it allows the light to shine through the holes. Add snowflake dies to each of the 3 panels and the larger full snowflake to the center or top for the Pool Party card stocks only.
- Next with the extra pieces die cut several snowflakes from the vellum, silver glimmer sheets and pool party after backing it with adhesive sheets. This will make it easy to attach later.
- Next die cut one Sparkle and one Pool Party using the swirl snow flake thinlet
- After everything is cut you can start assembling your project. Watch this video for instructions on assembling the window box.
- I punched a hole at the top of the window box pulling ribbon through it and then tied a knot to hang it by. Next I punched a hole in the bottom pulling the bakers twine through then tied a knot to prevent it from through for the dancing snowflakes.
- I used glue to attach the vellum to the inside of pool party. I choose to put the vellum on the inside, but you could add the vellum to the outside.
- After you have attached the box, be sure to use Tear and Tape.
- Add the random snowflakes to your box. And the long streaming snowflake to the top of the ribbon.
Enjoy the rest of the Snowflake Blog Hop.

Thank You I love making ornaments.
I am going to give this a try. Beautiful!

What a beautiful project, Elaine!
Lovely project! Did you cut a snowflake in both top and bottom panels? Thanks you for sharing your creativity!
Yes I did. That way the ornament is pretty if it is seen form the back. To give it the lite, I added a battery operated tea light. You can cut it off from he bottom.
Such a fantastic design! I love it and can’t wait to CASE!
