This dainty lace snowflake is the smallest of the 4 snowflake designs I recently shared with you, measuring a little over three inches. It features an open lacy design centered around a flower motif. It pairs especially nicely with the pretty picot snowflake here!

For best results, block snowflakes after finishing. Pin the snowflakes right-side down onto a blocking mat, making sure to straighten each snowflake 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.
