Snowflake Kits

Here are some of my newest kits from the Idea Closet.

True to my nature, I decided to swap out the paper for some out of my own supply. This time I also lightly brushed the letters with some blue ink. The snow flakes were purple to match the paper set the kit came with, but I was able to ink them blue too so I could use them. 
 Then I got this snowflake tree. I had some confusion on what it would actually be. Tracy mentioned that fabric is the big thing this year, so I thought the tree would be made out of ribbon. I was a little surprised to find the kit full of paper. It was a little bit of work to make the snowflakes, but in the end I loved how it turned out. I also used Jessica spray glitter to give it some shine. 

I have two Valentine's kits I'm working on right now. The paper I want to use will hopefully be here early next week so I can finish them. But until then I was able to get my hearts put together. If I had know they required sewing, I might have not gotten them. All the sewing was done with just a needle and thread and I really didn't mind that. I love how cute they are and I can't wait to finish the project along with the other Valentine's kit I have.
