1

Design snowflake

15 minutes

Open the SVG file in Easel and add any text you like.

2

Cut out snowflake

20 minutes

I chose to use a 1/8" bit for the profile and a V shaped bit to get detail in the text.

3

Paint ornaments with your family

15 minutes

We used washable finger paints. Once the paint dried 3 coats of polyurethane were applied to seal in the washable paints.

A fine paintbrush can be used to add detail to the lettering.

4

Add hook and ribbon

5 minutes

With a drill press or hand drill, add small holes to the top of the ornament. A 1/32" drill bit worked well for the eye hooks we found at the hardware store.

Tie a ribbon to the hook to finish the ornament.
