I used felt, tulle, netting, paper dollies & coffee filters to make the garland. I used my circle punch for all the papers & cut by hand the felt. Once I had all the circles on the fishing line I hot glued the circles to the line so that it would stay spread out. I sent my version of snowflakes back to California with Amie. She tells me it is hanging on her computer screen at work. I can just look out my windows to see the real thing.
