What a fantastic idea. Never thought of using my spellbinder dies this way. You've got me thinking now that I could probably do this with my flower spellbinder dies too! Thanks for always keeping me inspired.

Love the idea and am going to try another new technique. These tutorials are incredibly helpful to those of us with limited access to classes. Thanks again! Would love to try this with other of the shapes!

Gorgeous, snowflake...Sherry!! I have these dies, so I will have to give this a try for sure! Thanks for the fabulous tutorial/video!!

I made a similar embellishment using these dies for a Christmas card just last weekend. I used a sparkly snowflake brad for the center of mine. Very pretty either way!

Hi, Sherry, you did a great job on your tutorial. The idea of the wire through the buttons to use as a center of your snowflake is one I can see me using a lot. I love the glitter that you used it really sets of the snowflakes. I can't wait to try this. Thanks for sharing.

I love this! I'm just curious why you use glossy accents as opposed to a glue pad, spray adhesive, or glue? I am going to make these (with the kids) for a small branchy tree my sister has for ornaments.

What a pretty card embellishment, or ornament to hang on the tree or put in a flower arrangement. I'm curious, what kind of wire is it that you used (and love)? Thanks for sharing. Chris
