I am looking forward to a "Snowflake Workshop" later this month. We'll recycle white paper and add a pinch of glitter because we love the way snow glistens in the light. Next we'll pour the pulp into shapes we place in the deckle boxes, then we'll press the new sheets of paper into clay moulds to impress textured designs on the surface.
Later we can add a nylon thread or ribbon for hanging. They turn a Christmas tree into a winter wonderland, or they can hang in a window. Some may tuck them into cards as gifts, others may tie them onto gifts.
These hand-made paper snowflakes are such a fun time to make. You can call The Center now to sign up for the class on Wednesday, November 16, 6:30-8:30 pm in Log Cabin 1. The Center is at 12700 Southwest Hwy., Palos Park, IL. Phone: 708.361.3650.
When December rolls around, you'll be so glad you did this!
