Start adding beads – trying to stay even on all sides with your sizes. (ie: if you put three small beads on one end, put three small beads on all ends). Keep going until you have only about an inch of pipe cleaner showing at each end.

THE BAUBLE

To turn the snowflake into a bauble, don’t loop the ends (or unloop them if you’ve already gone that far). Then, push the ends through a large bead.
