snowflake gift wrap and cards

Each December, I spend a lazy Sunday afternoon in my studio stenciling Christmas cards and gift wrap. It's a tradition I absolutely love – listening to the radio, with a scented candle burning, while eating mince pie. I become so completely absorbed that my children know to warn me of their approach, with a little cough or heavy footsteps.

The snowflake stencils for this project are very versatile and could be used in lots of different ways. I've used a simple Scandinavian palette of red and white, but metallic paint on dark paper could be very nice, or you could try neon on white for a clean, modern look.

For the following projects, you'll need three stencils with different snowflake motifs. If you're using a printed template, the first thing you'll need to do is cut and prepare the stencils. If you're using purchased stencils, you're ready to get started.
