2. Repeat step #1 to create equally sized square shapes from the White on Clear Mardi Gras Glass Slab.
3. For each small blue square base, cut out a small piece of High Temp Stamen Wire. Bend each piece into a loop, then position the wire loop in the top center of the glass base, extending slightly beyond the glass edge. Secure with a pinpoint of Glas Tac Gel.
4. Use scissors to create and cut out snowflake shapes from the 1/4" or 'Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Âº" Fiberfrax Paper.
