Teeny Tiny Snowflake Garland

When browsing around on some blogs I ran across an idea for tissue paper cherry blossoms glued to sticks and placed in a vase.  It was beautiful and I still plan on making it, but I thought it was a bit too early in winter for blossoms.  I put together the vase with the sticks I plan on using for the cherry blossoms, but decided to put a little something more wintry in there in the meantime. 

I used a little 1/2" snowflake paper punch I have and made lots of little snowflakes.

I laid them out in a straight-ish line (not worrying about perfect spacing)...

placed a string (which was really just a thick sewing thread) over the top...

and put a tiny drop of glue over the top of the string (making sure it got on the paper as well).

I let it dry about an hour or two then hung it up on the sticks.

A touch of winter (which I must admit is NOT my favorite season... at least where we're living right now.)
