Snowflake Hanger Tutorial

Hi everybody.....at long last the Christmas Hanger Tutorial as promised...sorry you had to wait so long but as this was a workshop piece I couldn't post until they were all done and dusted.   I decided to do a stamped version but you could use double sided papers and in that case you would miss out the stamping section from the instructions below.....
Edited to add:   For all those folks who have e-mailed about the template.....I don't have a PDF that I can send you but if you draw out a rectangle using the measurements below....you can then freehand draw your own template and cut it out.

Step 1...Trace the template onto White cardstock and you will need 8
Stamp snowflake image in Versamark and heat emboss with White Embossing Powder
Step 2...Colour with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Broken China using blending tool and then buff with kitchen towel to remove any ink from the snowflakes
Step 3... Over stamp with Hero Arts Cling Music Background inked with Tim Holtz Brushed Corduroy and the Fiskars Stamp Press is just the bees knees when you are working with these large Cling Backgrounds
Step 4...Stamp  the reverse with Hero Arts  Large Canvas Stripes Background inked with Brushed Corduroy I find the easiest way to do this is to lay each petal on the inked stamp and press
Step 5...Cut out each petal..ink the edges with Brushed Corduroy and roll together as shown...you will need 4 with the striped side outwards and 4 with the snowflake side outwards......then flatten the end and staple
Step 6...Trace the template again onto Kraft Cardstock and again you will need 8...cut out and ink the edges with Brushed Corduroy......cut 2 - 5" circles from cardstock
Step 7...fix the Kraft petals to the circle as shown....

Step 8...fix the stamped petals making sure that the button when fixed will cover the staples
Step 9...now the real fun.....decorate as you wish. To fix the ribbon and button securely.....hold button in place and pierce through two diagonal holes with a pokey or pricking tool.....feed wire through from the reverse.....place ribbon in between the wires and then feed them through the button and twist until held in place.  You can hide the wire with the cord bow.
Fix cord on the reverse side of the circle and place the other circle on top and you have your finished Snowflake Hanger.


Hope you enjoyed my little tutorial and I would love to see your finished Christmas Hangers...so leave a comment or e-mail me with a link so I can come visit you

  2. Thanks for the instructions for the snowflake hanger Kath - I actually tried to make one of these (but smaller than yours) based on one of your earlier photos, here it is http://playingwithribbon.blogspot.com/2010/10/christmas-ornament-and-red-green-card.html but can see where I went wrong, now I know what to do, It'll be a lot easier! Thanks you very much, Mary

  12. Hi Kath-Awesomely beautiful but I too am a bit flumoxed by the template s'pose it would work if the shape you create approximates to the one you have done. Reminded me of the bottom of my iron which just proves I've been doing too much HW lately and better get back to crafting pronto! Hugs BettyXXX

  22. And now I'm confused-on my dashboard there's an extract from your blog which seems to be posing a question about knitting so I shot over expecting to read some fascinating insight and ....nothing...it's just not there. Come on Kath I'm dying to know what you wanted to find out about chunky cardigans. Lately I've even been contemplating dragging my knitting machine out and actually dreamt about it! BettyXXX

  50. I found this on Pinterest but was wondering. When it came to fixing the stamped petals onto the kraft petals did you staple them or glue them?
