My hubby worked on a grocery stock crew for a few months, and part of his job was putting price stickers onto all of the items.  Every day he would go through 2 or 3 rolls of stickers, and knowing that I would love them, he saved the empty rolls for me to use in my crafting!  They’ve been in my stash for a while now, just waiting for the perfect project.  When I had to come up with an ornament idea for a guest post at The CSI Project, I knew I wanted to use recycled materials; almost immediately the price sticker rolls came to mind!  I started arranging them in different patterns on my workroom table and was delighted to discover that 13 of them, placed in the right way, looked strikingly like a stylized snowflake.  A little glue and some spray paint later, I ended up with these lovelies!  [how to make a bubble snowflake ornament]
