Now, I know you can buy this kind of stuff, but I thought I'd use materials that I already had and spent a lovely evening in front of Kirstie's Vintage Home pressing out a load of silver snowflakes.
I used a snowflake design hole punch and thin silver card to make these little shimmery cut outs - my thumbs hurt quite a bit now as I had to press down with both of my hands in order to punch them out. Using thinner, silver paper would have been a lot easier, but I wanted to work with what I already had - so card it was.
I'm going to use the snowflakes as table confetti and scatter them over a white tablecloth on the food table at Astrid's party. Simple, but pretty, don't you think?
Also, sorry - in hindsight, I should have used a white background in this picture, as I can see some of the snowflakes are a little hard to see against the grey.
