25 Days Of Free Vintage Christmas Images

A Very Glitzey Christmas Project

I found two projects that I
wanted to share with you today! 
You will learn how to create your own
 unique  snowflakes to decorate your tree,
windows, Christmas Cards, and wreaths! 
These projects are great for adults
 and children to do together!
 Ready? O.K.!!
Have fun with these today!


Project  One:

Glitter Snowflakes

Materials Needed:

clip art sheets of snow flakes
plastic circle template
glitter glue
glue stick 
card stock
Christmas paper
hole punch


Trace around the snowflakes
with a plastic circle template. 
Trace the same size circle that
you  traced for your snowflake on the
card stock and the Christmas paper.

Add the glitter to your snowflake and let it dry.
 Glue the snowflake circle onto the card stock circle. 
Glue the Christmas paper circle onto the
back of the card stock circle to give your
 ornament a festive look on both sides!


 Trace the circles of card stock
and the Christmas paper one size larger 
 than the circle of the snowflake.
For even more detail and dimension
 to your snowflake ornament, you can
 trace the circle for the Christmas paper
 another size larger than the card stock circle!

Instead of using the printed Christmas paper,
 substitute shiny, foil Christmas paper in
solid colors of gold, silver, red, or green paper
to glue on the back of the card stock circle.

For some Extra Pizazzzzzz,
You can also use the shiny paper to glue on
the front of the card stock before you
glue the snowflake on the card stock circle!

Use decorative scissors to cut the circles with
 to jazzzzz up the edges of the ornament!

Add glitter to the Christmas paper that 
is glued on the back of the ornament
 for even more BLING!!

Use lace instead of ribbon for the tie on the ornament!

Use Glow in the Dark glue and regular glitter
on the black background/white snowflakes sheets ! 
Your kids will love the effect of glowing snowflakes in the dark!

The clip art  sheets have been reduced
in size to insure that all of the  details 
will fit properly on the screen!  

You will need to save these sheets in the largest size.

 Right click on the mouse to save and then
left click on image to save to largest size!
 Finish by clicking on save picture as!
