Make It : Snowflake Cards

Posted by

We got some beautiful snow on Thursday!  It made me want to send some snowflakes off to my friends in warmer climates.  Below you'll find a "snow globe in an envelope".  To make it you'll need a few paper doilies, card stock, glue pen or stick, and a plastic sleeve (the kind that a packaged card, etc may come in). Click through the gallery below for how-to!

These snowflake cards remind me of some doily valentines that were featured in Living in 2004.  Why not use your extra doilies to make some? You can also try these snowflake-inspired craft projects, or get more ideas for handmade cards.
