Happy Friday! How was your week? Did you know that Silhouette’s annual 12 Days of Christmas is going on right now? Each day they post a new free shape on their design store in addition to the free shape of the week which is this cute Christmas Ornament. The little snowflake in the design caught my eye, leading to today’s DIY Gold Mod Snowflake Seals. Add a little gold foil and your Silhouette cutting machine, and you are set!
