First I had to clear a spot on my sewing/craft table.  There are too many projects going on right now!  Once you’ve cleared a little spot, die cut the Hot Melt Sheets with the Sizzix snowflake die.  Cut only 1 at a time as the adhesive will stick to itself if you try multiple layers.foil snoflake burlap ornament 2Cut the burlap (2) 6″ x 8″.  Position the snowflake and heat set with a medium hot iron, about 20 seconds.  Let completely dry and peel off backing paper.

Cover with the pressing paper that comes with Hot Melt Sheets.  Heat set with an iron set to a MEDIUM DRY temperature.  DO NOT OVER HEAT.  Iron with firm pressure for 20 seconds.  Let cool completely.foil snoflake burlap ornament 5Gently peel off the foil leaving a beautiful snowflake!foil snoflake burlap ornament6

Cut 2 pieces of lace the 6″ and use Spray n Bond to position.  Sew lace on using white thread.

Add a piece of wire and tie a decorative bow.  I like my burlap to look frayed, you can trim if you like a neater look 🙂
