3D Snowflake Ornament Free Scroll Saw Pattern.

This 3D Snowflake ornament has been enhanced with jewelry findings. Loop rings, beads, and a crystal added a little extra punch to a basic pattern. Use your imagination and make something unique. All craft stores sell jewelry findings. You will need 1/2" loop rings and some jewelry wire. Add any beads you like but if you use the included stand you have to keep an eye on the length of the ornament. 

I used 1/8" Baltic birch for the snowflake and 1/4" Baltic birch for the stand. 1/8" BB ply is difficult to cut because it is so thin. Take advantage of stack cutting to make more than one ornament and also make it easier to cut. You can easily cut four or five of these in one blank. 

All Caught Up......almost.....

I was able to complete all the Personalized Christmas Ornament orders today. If you are waitning on your order you should have it. If you have not seen it makes sure you check your email spam folder. The order is attached to the email invoice as a PDF. Thanks for all the orders and keep them coming. 

I will have the Personalized Pet ornament patterns ready soon. I am still working on the design. I'll post on the blog when they are available.

I will be sending out the invoices for the Personalized signature coins Sunday night. I will have those orders ready for the mailman Monday. 

Battery Powerd LED Strips.

I have designed a couple of patterns lately that used LED lights. A few people ask me if I knew of any battery powered strips. I found this set on Amazon tonight I ordered one. I should have it in a couple of days and will let you know how it works. 

It was only $11. It says the batteries will last five hours continuous use. It takes 3 AA batteries. Probably going to try rechargeable batteries and see how long they last.
