Flurries in a Hurry

If you need a quick gift , I have a "Flurry in a Hurry" Just for you! A couple of weeks ago we did a festival of lights celebration at cuttlebug challenge blog, it got my wheels going about all the interesting ways to create light. I picked up a basic night light for less than a dollar...yes that's right a fantastic quick gift for less than a dollar!!
I drilled a small hole in the center of the plastic cover with my dremmel, went through it like buttah!


I layered multiple sizes and textures of snowflakes, placed a sparkly brad through all layers, and added a few rhinestones with mono multi glue, and its done!! You could make a dozen of these in one afternoon... and you know you will WOW the recipient of this gift......
Disclaimer:I would advise anyone to not leave this unattended, it is paper and felt after all !!!!
This snowflake is a package adornment, I slid a pearl head pin through the rhinestone brad, and added a bead and weaved it through the ribbon {I cut the end off the pin} no fingers will be harmed during the unwrapping process :)
Supplies:
snowflake die #2 Stampin'Up!
jumbo snowflake punch Stampin'Up!
felt snowflakes
acetate
rhinestone brads
rhinestones, bead, pearl head pin,

Oh my goodness!! I LOVE all these - they're snowflakes & I love snowflakes!

You could also put several of these as a border around a lamp shade if you didn't want the fear of starting a fire.
