3D Snowflakes

Winter Woodland has these amazing snowflakes and they are wonderful for making ornaments or tags for gifts! I am going to show you how to turn one of these cuts into a 3D object!

First you will need to cut out four snowflakes at all of the same size!
I am using the Layers option with the third snowflake from the left on the top row. I cut four of these at 4".
Next, we are going to emboss the snowflakes to give them texture. I am using the 5" x 7" Polka Dot Embossing Folder.
The third step is to create one score mark in the center of each snowflake.
Once you have the score marks on all four snowflakes, fold the raised dot side together.
Place adhesive on the backs of the snowflakes (the indented side) and match one side together. You will continue adding the snowflakes until all sides are matched!
And then you have your snowflake!
Supplies:
Scrapbook Paper: White (The Paper Studio)
Die Cuts: Cricut Winter Woodland (Provo Craft)
Machine: Cricut Expression with 12x12 mat (Provo Craft)
Embossing: Cuttlebug Polka Dots Folder and Cuttlebug Machine (Provo Craft)
Ink: Stickles in Frosted Lace (Ranger)
Misc: Baker's Twine

Be sure to stop by on the BLOG HOP on 12/3 to see what I used one of my snowflakes for!

Very cute! Love the idea of running them through the Cuttlebug. Simple but elegant.
