Snowflake Vintage

I know its a little {OK a lot} early for snowflakes! I have a trio of vintage inspired snowflake ornaments to share with you, they are all cut with the sizzix snowflake die and embellished in total retro style! I'm working overtime on displays for Stampcation, and these ornaments will be part of the Christmas decor1 Don't you just adore the glitter, and recycled magazine pages?

This ornament is pretty enough and big enough {6"} to be a gift! Just make a sweet vintage gift box to match and you are in business! {the business of giving gifts that is ;) }

This one is smaller, measuring 4" the soft pink snowflake and espresso printed paper are so pretty when a glittered winged bird is added to the mix. I can see this on a tree in a little girls room, or as a package tie, dreamy!!!! 

Its fun to see what words from the magazine page end up on your punched bird, I love that the word "collection" randomly shows up on this confectionery ornament.

scaling back the size of the rosette, and placing it in the center of a Riding hood red snowflake, is simple, sweet and quick! Just looking at it makes me drool for candy canes and hot chocolate...I know, I will have to wait, but a girl can have visions of sugar plums early right?!!!

Dust off your scoring tools, and break out the snowflakes, its time to stock up on vintage themed paper handmade ornaments!
Happy creating~

Shantaie these ornaments or so beautiful. I absolutely love the first one. I've used the glimmer paper for a snowflake card I did on my blog and it's a real WOW, so when I saw these I was instantly in love! Thanks for sharing.
