Materials

• Brother’s ScanNCut machine and accessories
• USB memory stick
• 10” embroidery hoop
• White acrylic paint
• Paintbrush
• Approximately 5 sheets of 12”x 12” white patterned paper
• Buttons
• Foam adhesive mounting tape
• Glue gun and glue

Instructions

1. Start off by separating the embroidery hoop. Use just the inner circle (not the one with the hardware on it). Paint all the sides of the hoop white and allow it to dry. (See Figure #1.)

2. Next, we need to cut out our snowflakes. You can use the ScanNCut built-in designs, the free download snowflakes, or scan in and cut your own. (See Figure #2)

Make about 40 flakes, from 1.5” – 4” high. (You’ll need to cut out a lot of them since they’ll be layered up.) We used all-white paper, with pearl-finish debossing. Mixing up the size, shape and pattern of the flakes really individualizes each snowflake stack! (See Figure #3)

3.Once you’re finished cutting, build your snowflake stacks. For each stack, start with the largest flake. Then, using foam adhesive, adhere a medium-sized flake on top of it, followed by a small flake on top of that. Vary your flakes so that some are stacked 2-high, and some 3-high. (See Figure #4)

4. Using your glue gun, attach the snowflake stacks to the top of the hoop. (See Figures #5, 6, 7)

5. Apply one layer of snowflakes on the back side of the hoop to create depth. You can stagger different sizes to fill in any areas that need filling out from the front view. (See Figure #8)

6. Add some embellishments (such as buttons) to your front-facing snowflakes. We love how the layers of the snowflake stacks look so multi-dimensional when it’s finished. (See Figure #9)
