Welcome to the Snowflake Palace



THESE THREE WINDOWS ARE STACKED NEXT TO MY FRONT DOOR. I'VE BEEN BUSY FILLING THEM WITH PAPER SNOWFLAKES. I LOVE THE SWEET SIMPLICITY OF FOLDING AND SNIPPING THE SCRAP PAPER, AND THE SURPRISE OF THE PATTERN AS I UNFOLD THE DELICATE, LACEY PAPER. I CAN'T FILL THE SPACE ON THE BOTTOM WINDOW - THAT'S WHERE BETTIE SITS TO LOOK OUT UPON THE FROSTY WINTER WORLD.

er, how do you stick these on the window without getting glue all over the glass and the pretty paper?

Hello pRiyA. Thanks for stopping by, and for all your comments. I stick the snowflakes to the window with small bits of clear tape. When I take them down, I'll have to be very careful pulling the tape off to keep it in one piece. I might have to scrape the glass with a razor blade. It's worth the effort though!
