Glitter Snowflakes

IMG_0149

These snowflakes, originally found here, were super easy to make, but took a long time, 15 plus hours to dry.  The plan was for this to be a craft for Reagan and I to do on a super chilly, 9 degree, day here in Rochester.  Unfortunately, the only part of this craft that Reagan was able to participate in was the shaking of the glitter onto the glue.  She wasn’t super disappointed, and luckily I still had left overs on hand from a Snow Man craft that we did a week or so back.

IMG_0144When completely dry; carefully peel the snowflakes off of the wax paper.  I obviously wasn’t successful in peeling off each snowflake, but no snowflake is the same or perfect, so I we still used the ones that didn’t peel off perfectly.
