I must say that I had seen and heard about the SnowDrops before. However, I still have very vague ideas about this lovely plant. I Googled the images and found so many stunning photos about this very special white flowers. Thus, I was amazed and inspired.

Altenew-CAF Snowdrops-002

 This set comes with many small pieces. However, they are very easy to recognize and assemble.
I get frazzled very easily if there are too many finicky pieces! BUT, that didn't happen with this one.

 A little tweezer is helpful. If you don't own a tweezers, May I suggest the wooden tooth picks! They work beautifully for me!
