Inkpad, blue; sponge
Mica Snow glitter
Paper cutter, scissors, die-cut machine (Cricut)
Artiste Cricut cartridge by Close To My Heart (For snowflakes and rosettes)
Decoupage medium or tacky glue, brush sponge

Sticky Sticks are fun and easy to craft with. What is unique about these jumbo craft sticks, you ask?
Below is a close-up of the adhesive strip. Before using, you peel away the release paper that is still in place here.
Trim the rounded end of each stick into a rounded point.
Cut 3/4" strips of paper. Trim to fit the front and back of each stick. Leave the adhesive area open. Adhere with decoupage medium or tacky glue.
Repeat the above step with the remaining Sticky Sticks.
Trace around the foam disk onto the wrong side of the cardstock. Cut one out for the front and the back. Adhere.
Cut and adhere 1" x 12" strips of cardstock around the sides to finish. Trim excess.
Shade edges of disk and sticks using the wedge sponge and inkpad.
Space the sticks evenly around the disk. I recommend marking your spaces. Remove the release paper from each stick and adhere to the front of the disk. Make sure you are happy with the placement before you make it permanent! The accordion fold rosette will cover up the ends of the sticks on the front of the snow burst.
Did you make a mistake? Don't panic! Just lift the stick as carefully as possible and repair the adhesion
with a little tacky glue if needed.
Now you are ready to embellish! Cut out the snowflakes and rosettes using the die-cut machine. Assemble the rosettes. Once you get the embellishments placed and glued, apply glue to the snowflakes and apply the glitter. Allow to dry. Adhere the snowflakes to the project as shown in photos given.
I think I got an optical illusion with the photo below! Interesting, huh?
