  • Snowflake patterns

    Prior to last Christmas I decided to decorate my own tree and I decided on snowflakes. I found some patterns in books and then I stumbled onto www.daves-snowflakes.com. Dave had posted the patterns on the site in memory of his mother who made it a family tradition to creat new patterns. He now sells them on a cd with 336 patterns. I filled my tree with many patterns and named it "My Swedish Tree." Daves site is www.daves-snowflakes.com. I cut four out at one time by stacking them. I hung them with fishing line. All my ornaments were cut out of 1/4" and they lightly stacked in a small box after the season. The ornaments also do not put excessive weight on the branches. The patterns can also be cut out of paper so those of you that have children in earlier grades might want to share some with the teachers. I finished them by dipping them in mineral oil. A friend of mine dips his wood vehicles in a tank of mineral oil and then puts them sit on mesh over the tank. Its inexpensive and seals very well

    Hey all,

    I know it's spam, (1st post and an add. -duh Marcel, not too hard to figure out!)

    but the subject is appropriate to the forum and it may interrest some folks on this site.

    That's why I didn't delete it.

    Regards,
    Marcel

          Thought I'd bump this as it looks like some good holiday info... funny how tagging the poster as a spammer seemed to pan out, sad but it happens.

          The patrio flakes might be adapted well to the ornaments for troops drive, as well A+ PatrioFlakes | Patriotic Images for Children

              The holiday issue has some great snowflakes! I made up the three small ones....very delicate I might add. I did use baltic birch 1/8th thick, and parts of the tiny ends came off, but I shall persevere and make more. I have now blown the small patterns up to 200% and now have lovely LARGER snowflakes! Easier to cut too! LOL

                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
