Wrap a flat piece of Styrofoam or thick cardboard with wax paper and tape to secure. Using straight pins, pin the snowflakes right side down onto the Styrofoam/cardboard, making sure to straighten each point. Using a small paintbrush, apply a thin coat of fabric stiffener over the snowflakes. Let sit until dry or as long as directed on the stiffening product. Once dry, sew a piece of thread through the top of each snowflake and knot the thread to create a loop.
