glistening snowflakes

My friend Casey showed me these patterns for snowflakes on the Michael's website. You can click here for the patterns. There are 3 sizes I did. I found this sparkly white and red yarn at Michael's on sale for 2 for $3. It was a great deal. And I still have plenty left to use.

After I crocheted them I ironed them with a paper towel on top to get them to lay right.
Then I starched them by dipping them into 3/4 starch and 1/4 water. Then I let them dry on wax paper or paper towels.

And now I have some ornaments for Christmas! They make great gifts!
