Hope Studio's Snowflake Blizzard

This is the most fun (and work) I've had so far this December!
After reading Jennifer Juniper's Hope Studio Blog about how she was inspired to recreate Elf's 'snowflake blizzard', I was inspired.  Even though I don't have the little helpers that she does to cut out all the snowflakes, I found it really didn't take many to get a great effect.  So here are a few pictures of my punier version of the same.

I did as Jennifer's tutorial suggested and first hung my LED lights and then pinned up a chain for depth.
Now all I really needed was to add some snowflakes, which took lonesome me several nights to cut out.  I'm  s-l-o-o-o-w...

I also bought some small-ish silver ornaments to hang, but in the end, I kinda like it the way it is!

Another idea I really liked was found at Bella Dia: Simple, Happy, Pretty, Things for making Glitter Foil Icicles.  Those could be really cute hung here and there and don't look especially difficult!

Update Nov. 29, 2012:
As a P.S....Here is another site that I found really fun.  This girl has got the snowflake gene!!  Wow! http://decoratingdiy.blogspot.com/2011/12/snowflake-blizzard.html (look at that pile of clippings!) and the finished product...http://decoratingdiy.blogspot.com/2011/12/non-tree-christmas-tree.html

Thank you Hope Studios and Bella Dia for some great ideas! 
Merry Christmas everyone!
