Next, let’s take a look at how to create the half orb, adorning the top of the snowflake.

Supplies needed include: a ruler, bone folder, Zots for bling, and a 1.5 circle punch.

Punch 5 circles from the patterned paper.  Score at the 3/8″ mark.  These will become equilateral triangles.

Fold at the score mark, and then find the center on the back of the circle.  Mark with a pencil.  That becomes your next score line point.

Repeat on all 3 sides.  Fold on all score lines.

The five circles have now become scored equilateral triangles.  Next, simply add zots to the edges and adhere one triangle to the next.

Continue adhering the triangles together, creating the half orb, that will be adhered to your snowflake.  Lastly, spray with light coat of Iridescent Glitter Dust.
