I've been looking for my hot glue gun for a while ... I wanted to use it to make a few stencils for my powder printing on glass. And recently my friend gave me a bag of hot glue sticks! Yesterday I finally gave up my search and drove off to buy a new glue gun. Which means I'll find the other one very soon ....

Last week I saw a craft article where the writer used the glue gun to make wonderful snowflakes. What a cute idea! You can add them as ornaments to your tree, stick them on your windows, add them to your gift wrapping! There's still time for YOU to make some! She also added sprinkles while they were still hot so they sparkled. I googled images of snowflakes, reduced the sizes and printed a few. I used a piece of parchment paper with the snowflake pattern underneath, so that made it easy to copy the pattern using the glue gun. It took just a few minutes for each to dry. Then it was easy to peel them off the parchment paper. Here are the snowflakes I made today.

Not a great photo (and I need more practice), but you get the idea. And you need to go slow so the lines are thick enough.
