    We can no longer get these six pack rings here in Australia so if I want them I am going to have to buy them off ebay from the US. They look great though!

  • BringYourOwnBags 25 Dec, 2008

    I don't think the idea is to purchase these plastic rings but to save and reuse the ones you already have. As friends or the freecycle.org community site.

    I found pictures for the lady that was asking about pictures. I save the projects and recipes I like from the Martha show, and pictures are always nice if you forget how exactly it was done when you first saw the episode :o) Pictures for the flakes are here http://www.craftbits.com/viewProject.do?projectID=2133

    deannaboyde--you can contact your local soda distributor (coca cola, pepsi etc) and I"m sure they would be thrilled to give you as many as you want and then some...http://www.marthastewart.com/images/assets/module/registration/reg_submi...

    Is there a craft store that I can buy the six pack holders rather than drinking lots of beer or pop lol? This craft is so beautiful. I would love to have several to hang from my ceiling..

    I have gotten spray adhesive at Home Depot. You could as so spray paint, maybe sliver or gold and then glitter before it dries.

    Where can I find 3M Super 77 spray adhesive? Is there anywhere I can see what the finish of this craft looks like?

  • Taytay1994 1 Dec, 2008

    Does anybody know where I can find 3M Super 77 spray adhesive? I missed the episode today so I am just wondering if there is a way I can find a picture of the Six-Pack Snowflake..

    It shrinks it down so it's not so poofy.:o)

    I tuned in late. Martha was using a hair drier on the plastic rings. Could someone tell me what that was for? There is no mention of a hairdrier in the directions.

    I couldn't believe my eyes on today's show when I saw the snowflakes. I have made this kind of snowflake for years, but have never glittered them. I will in the future. I have one suggestion in making them. I just staple them together. It is easy for young hands to manipulate and eliminates the tape and fishing line. I do use fishing line for hanging. Also if you staple it will make it easy for future storage in a basement or attic.
