When I saw the skates image from this set, I imagined the skates hanging from the laces. My good friend Debra gave me this blue and white twine. It was the perfect for the laces. I cut the skates out and I used a paper piercing tool to make holes for the twine. I used a silver sharpie marker to make the blades of the skates. I added dp with snowflakes on it. I added dazzling diamonds glitter to the centers of the snowflakes. I used the sentiment from another MFP set called Brrr 

Check out what the other designers did with this set. 

Here's the Design Team:
