It has been over 10 years since my wife took a scrolling class, but a few weeks ago she came to me and said she wanted to cut some snowflakes to be used as Christmas decorations. This is what we came up with.

She cut the small one first as a trial piece, and with success she built up enough confidence to stack cut the two larger ones. She then painted all of the surfaces both sides, and applied glitter glue to make them sparkle. We hung them with white ribbon from our chandelier in the foyer. They remind of a mobile as they gently turn and reflect light from our big front window.

Pattern is from Scrollsaw Magazine: http://www.scrollsawer.com/patterns/crystal-lace-ornaments.html

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone!

They look great! And you can leave them up all winter if you like to chase away the winter blahs! I love sparkly things and I bet they look even better in person when they catch the sun. Nice! :D

Nice job cutting. Takes patience and a steady hand.

Very nice Sherri !!
Now I see where Mat gets his talent from.
Is that a form of osmosis? :-)
Next up you have to try his chevalet.
