A few years ago I began making ornaments for my Aunts and Uncles, Grandparents and Parents, and anyone else I needed a quick, easily made Christmas gift. For 2009 I got started early. I got a beaded snowflake kit from Herrschners for a deeply discounted price.They were fairly easy to make, once I got the hang of it. There were two color combinations; the blue one pictured below, and a white one with blue accent beads. It's almost entirely the reverse of the one below.
