Bella Blvd: Trending Tuesday on a Friday night

It was Trending Tuesday over at the Bella Blvd blog this week.  We were highlighting velllum, which seems to be making a huge comeback...

Christmas Countdown: Believe, City Sidewalks, Paper Pieces, Tabs; Play Date: Alpha+Bits; Engaged at Last: Alpha+Bits; Designer Tape: Pickle Juice Stripe, Chevron Combo; High Five Alphas: Pink-Red, Brown-Cream

Since it's the chilly month of December, I decided to use vellum to make snowflakes. I don't have a snowflake die, so I used a flower die and then just snipped off the ends.  To finish the look, I added some iridescent glitter glue around the edges. For the 'button' centers, I covered a piece of white cardstock with Chevron designer tape, and punched out circles. I then punched in some 'button holes', and threaded them with twine. To add dimension, I stuck them down with pop dots. 

It seems that we all had pretty much the same snowflake idea, it being winter and all it just seemed fitting. But, head on over to the Bella Blvd blog and check out how everyone was inspired to use vellum, each one had their own unique twist :)

Thanks for stopping by!
