Mini Tips and Tuts: Non-Woven Interfacing Scraps = Frosty Looking Snowflakes
Submitted by Pam on Fri, 01/17/2014 - 01:56
Seems like almost everyone is cutting paper snowflakes this month! And indeed, cutting snowflakes is a great way to use junk mail and scrap paper.
Personally, I prefer cutting snowflakes out of non-woven interfacing - like Pellon.
For two reasons!
It is nearly impossible to remove the folding creases from a paper snowflake...
Â… while folding creases in snowflakes made using non-woven interfacing press out beautifully! Just be sure you use non-fusible interfacing!!!
And snowflakes made from non-woven interfacing look a whole lot more like frost!
In my experience, medium to heavy weight is the best choice.
If you haven't already made snowflakes using Pellon or other non-woven interfacing fabric, try it!!
And just for fun - here are a couple pretty darn cool snowflake tutorials for the adventurous!
