I’m just having so much fun creating pretties for Christmas. Today, I’m going to show you how to make these quilled snowflake ornaments. Please leave a comment if you have any questions and send me pictures of your finished projects. I would love to see them!

Supplies needed:

 

1. Cut 14 strips of card stock lengthwise, approximately ¼” thick.

6 strips need to be cut in half.

2. Cut the tip off the toothpick. Cut a ½” slit down the center of the toothpick.

Attach a little tape around the bottom end of the slit to keep it from splitting further.

3. Mark off the circumference of your circle.

4. Using a pencil, mark the paper strips as follows:

  • 4 strips at 8 cm. for large teardrops
  • 4 strips at 6 cm. for small teardrops
  • 8 half strips at 3.5 cm. for circles
  • 4 half strips at 4 cm. for diamonds

Here are all the shapes you’ll need for the snowflake.

10. Once dry, pinch both ends of the circle to create a teardrop.

To create the diamond shape, start with the teardrop, then pinch the middle sides to make a diamond shape.
