These beautiful snowflake ornaments (shown above) couldn't have been easier to make! I love that the process was mess-free, very easy, and frugal. Plus, we have more ornaments to add to our tree that are not fragile!!
To make your own snowflake ornaments, you will need: white model magic, snowflake cookie cutters, a rolling pin, and some ribbon.
I like to purchase model magic in big tubs when I have a 40% off coupon for the craft store. You can print one out here, if there is a Michael's craft store near you!! Or AC Moore has all Crayola merchandize as a Buy One Get One Free special this week!
Invite your child over to roll out the Model Magic. Keep rolling until you have a piece that is about 1/4" thick.
Cut with cookie cutters!! (This was Emily's favorite part!)
A straw does a great job of making a hole to thread the ribbon through.
Roll up any excess Model Magic, and repeat the process until all the Model Magic is used up.
One package will make several ornaments!
Allow to air dry, then thread with ribbon to hang on your tree. You could also write on these with markers and they could double as gift tags!!
We had a great time making these, and I cannot wait for Clara to wake up from her nap so she can join in the fun!
