Today I have a simple little wall hanging (or it could even be hung on a Christmas tree) that I made using some inexpensive wooden snowflakes that I picked up at Michael's last year (I think they were less than $1 each). To spell out the word, JOY, I used JB-08095 Myriad Pro - 95 point Upper & Lowercase Font Set. I used the lowercase letters since they fit the best inside each snowflake. The final snowflake is a photo of my DD, Sabrina, wearing her Santa hat. I sprayed each snowflake with some Glimmer Mist, let dry and added some Swarovski crystals around. I punched holes with my Cropadile and attached each snowflake with some twine. I added a couple of jingle bells to the last snowflake.

Each letter is embossed with fine black embossing powder. Here's a look at each snowflake:
