Snowflake Giveaway!


Snowflakes


I always have so much fun making paper snowflakes that I know by the time I'm done, I'll have rather more than I really need. So, I thought it might be fun to send some out into the world.

For one lucky person, I'll send a Christmas card from the Netherlands to anywhere the postal system will take it, with a few of my snowflakes tucked inside. The snowflakes I'll send will be similar to the ones shown in the pictures here. Some of them are made from magazines, which means that the back may not be as decorative as the front. For a chance to win, comment on this post by Tuesday, November 30, and I'll pick a random winner on December 1.

You are so sweet.
I love your snowflakes - your cutwork is amazing!
I am a bit clumsy with the scissors - if I try to cut a snowflake, it looks like a kindergarten art project :(

These are so pretty - I remember making snowflakes with you last year for my dance class.

However!!! I want to hear far more about your pregnancy!! How are you doing? And, more pictures!!

I always *love* your snowflakes but never seem to be able to make them myself. The ones I have from years gone by are sadly tattered!

(This is really a lame effort to say, "pick me, pick me!")

Me me! :) Maybe it'll motivate me to make some myself. :D

Ooh, snowflakes :)

Yes, must make some for myself as I've just moved into a new apartment.

I've been thinking about you and D here - I just moved into a much smaller apartment than my last place in Montréal so I'm having to substantially reduce the amount of stuff I keep around. Clearly what I'm doing is not the same as what you did, but it reminds me of some of your posts from ~1 year ago.

I love these! When you posted your "how to" I immediately tried to make one at my desk. It turned out ok, but not nearly as artful as yours!

I really like this little "giveaway' idea. Have you ever thought about putting one snowflake in every card you send? It would make for a nice personal touche.

I also have to agree with Angela #1, more about, and pics of Little Bun!

They're so pretty! I would make some, but I don't think they would survive our cats and toddler. I made do with some stick-on ones for the windows.

Your snowflakes are great, and I really appreciate you posting the tutorial, because I plan to make some this your for our Christmas tree. We have a new kitten you see, which means that none of my glass ornaments can go on the tree, and I'll have to fill in the gaps with non-breakables, including paper snowflakes!
