Well, I made 6 of the regular sized cuties tonight, and it took me less than 2 hours (including glue drying time).
It turns out that they are just as cute as I suspected!
The most difficult part about the entire project was locating the "artificial snowflakes" in the craft store. Let me give you a hint: look in the glitter section of the store. Otherwise, you'll walk around the entire store 43 times before you find anything that even remotely resembles snow.
Make these--there's still time before Christmas! They're adorable and surprisingly easy to make!
