The first step to this project is finding a snowflake sketch or template. I choose to search Google Images for a snowflake template to print. Sized a few different templates, printed and taped my parchment paper over the printed templates.
Be sure that you look at your glued snowflake skeleton and see that the branches of your snowflake are full and plump. Skinny glue branches on your snowflake result in a failed project, so look closely before you apply the glitter.
I tested the project and I found that the Helmar Craft and Hobby PVA glue was the best choice for achieving a continuous thick line of glue for a sturdy skeleton snowflake after the glitter was applied and dried over night.
Apply your favorite glitter, dry (overnight) and gently peel away the snowflake skeleton from the parchment paper.
After testing the peel away step, i found if you roll the parchment paper away from the dried glued skeleton snowflake, it came off easily. Spray outside, the Helmar Crystal Kote Gloss Varnish to hold the glitter.
This project would be great for a SNOW DAY, to keep the kids busy. A bonding project for grandparents and grandchildren.
Imagine the possibilities of this Helmar Craft and Hobby PVA glue. Each season you could come up with a craft for each themed event. ie: New Year, Valentines, St. Patrick, Easter, its endless and all from the best glue-- Helmar, Craft and Hobby PVA glue .
Add Helmar Craft and Hobby Glue to someone's Christmas stocking this year !!!
