Hey Sugarplums,

This week we made snowflakes out of hot glue. In terms of instant satisfaction with a craft, this is it. We free-handed the snowflakes, but if you’re making a bunch of them, or you want them to be uniform, then using a template would be helpful. Just remember to use parchment paper and NOT WAX PAPER. Just trust us.

The snowflake will never come off the wax paper. Otherwise, if you’re free-handing, a silicone mat will work as well -- or a metal first aid kit you keep tucked away, because you forgot to buy a roll of parchment paper.
