Quilled Snowflakes

I like 6-point snowflakes versus four or five-points .. I think they look better.

To make this 13-strip snowflake, use 4-inch strips. Make one tight, semi-tight OR loose roll for the center.

Decide on two shapes in groups of six for the points. A marquise and T-scroll were used here. ANY shape or scroll can be used.

Use as little glue as necessary and allow to dry completely.

Tips: Use 1/8-inch strips of white, light blue or gray paper. (However, if you are decorating a tree with all pink ornaments, by all means make pink snowflakes!) Use as little glue as you can get by with, and a pair of tweezers is a must tool when making snowflakes! Width and length can be adjusted for any size snowflake. Add a bit of glitter glue to a finished snowflake, applying lightly with fingers. To make a jump-ring to hang your snowflake-- wrap a strip around a small dowel or drinking straw and glue it to a point of the snowflake.



To make more decorative snowflakes apply additional shapes in groups of six to the points. See the examples shown above.

To make a fully decorative snowflake, apply six of the same shape between the points as shown in the examples below.
