Glittery Snowflake Embellishment

I'm not really sure what to call this. Is it a star? Is it a snowflake? It could be either! In this case since I went with the blues and topped it off with the snowflake brad, mine is going to be a snowflake - or maybe starflake :-)

This morning I was pointed to a similar project made with two very specific tag punches. Punches that I do not have and the last thing I need to do is go buy 2 more punches for one specific project when I have so much here already to work with. So, I set out to make my own.

I first tried to use a tag die that I have for my Cuttlebug that is similar to those that were used in the original. The angles on the tag were different, and didn't allow for it all to line up right. Had to scrap all that.

Then I came across my Sizzix Star die. It worked very well! This is what I ended up with...

I haven't decided what to put this on yet. It would work on a card, but i'm thinking something a bit bigger. Will have to see about that later.

I'm going to make another one and will take pictures as I go to post it as a tutorial soon.

Ooooh, Michelle! This is lovely! I don't have the SU tag punches, either (not very fond of SU, period)--- but oh! For a minute I was tempted to run out and buy them! Thanks for showing an even prettier alternative, using stuff I should already have. Can't wait to see a tutorial!

Thanks for your time and effort--
Best Wishes,
Mary
