    those snowflakes look great! I might make a few for my staircase….if I can finish all the wrapping and baking!

    1. Thank you, my husband is baking for us but I still also have to wrap gifts. I better get going tomorrow or Friday 😉 Merry Christmas!

  3. Julia, you have the greatest MOST original ideas….love everything you do!! Have a wonderful holiday!
    The snowflakes are beautiful!!!

    1. Thank you so much Katie and Merry Christmas

  4. Oh my word, these are amazing. What a creative and genius idea. Love the tutorial too.

  5. Hello Julia, thank you for this wonderful achievement. I would like to start tomorrow with the children for this Christmas that is coming.
    Please, can you explain to me how to see your video tutorial ? On the link you give I see no video or download (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/).

    Thank you very much in advance ♥

    1. Hi Polly, that creative commons link is my Music credit that I have to give because I used the song in my video.
      Please click on the triangle on the one image to watch the tutorial. I just watched and it is all working fine.

      Or you can head to YouTube and watch it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ks1FRedU5LI

  6. So sad these did not work out like I thought they would. I was trying to be careful as to how far I would cut into the bag but some areas cut right through. Measurements would be super helpful. I would make sure you have EXTREMELY sharp scissors. Those all metal scissors would be best

  7. Did you add the gingerbread trim details after gluing together or before, and is it also the puffy paint like on the cardboard gingerbread? Thanks!! They are all fabulous ideas! So much to absorb! Love the terracotta pumpkins and ornaments too!

    1. Hi Libby, yes I put painted the snowflakes after I glued them together witht he same puffy paint as the cardboard gingerbread. Thanks so much and good luck with making your own.

  8. Hi! stumbled upon this tutorial for my daughter’s winter ONEderland party. Excited to get started! Curious, would using fewer than 9 bags still produce a larger snowflake?

    Thanks for the clear guidelines!

    1. Hi Leah! Yes, using 7 works great too. Anything less doesn’t work. Good luck!

  9. Where does the fairy light battery pack go?

    1. Hi Renee, mine are plug-in fairy lights not battery operated. Good luck

    Julia, WOW, I just found your site on Pinterest and I’m so happy that I did. I love your snowflakes and all the wonderful design ideas you have come up with. I have subscribed to your site as I don’t want to miss anything. Thank you so very much for sharing all your ideas, without charging. It certainly means a lot to someone like me who is on a small pension. Have a great Holiday!!!!!

    1. Thanks so much Helene for the sweet comment. That made my day! Kepp them coming. Did you see that I posted another paper snowflake tutorial today?

  11. Hi julia, I LOVE the paper bag snowflake! However, I’m having lots of trouble fanning them out -they just don’t seem to separate and get all crinkled. Any idea what I’m doing wrong?

    1. Hi Nancy, I”m sorry you are having issues. The only thing I can think of is that the bags glue together in the wrong spots at the top or that your bags are faulty. I’m not sure. I’ve never heard of that issue.

  12. A paper clip or 2 will hold the fanned (first and last) bags together to hang then remove paper clips and save.

    1. You are so right! That’s a great way to keep them for the next year. I hung mine opened from the rafters in my attic so I could bring them out again for Christmas.
