The image I used here is from Serene Snowflakes (one of my very favorite holiday sets this year), but it could be almost anything. And, I actually prefer it turned on it's side like this:
But with this snowflake, I think most people would be turning it upright (like the first picture). I'd need to use something that has a definite top and bottom if I wanted to have it sideways like this.
Anyway, I like this one quite a bit, so I'll probably make a few! (...I didn't even ask the guys if they liked it. I'm the one doing all the work, right? I should have the right to veto, shouldn't I?!)
