One of the frequently asked questions is how to block snowflakes and what kind of stiffener to use. Clyndia D. Mathews, author of Crochet Memories made an excellent list of stiffeners from commercial brands to homemade solutions along with recipes, opinions, and expected results for each!

So, how do I block my snowflakes? I use a water-glue (Elmer's All Purpose Glue) solution as the stiffener.  I dip my snowflakes in the solution then squeeze the excess. I use an empty pizza box as my blocking board. My awesome brother made a blocking template for me! I tape it down on my pizza box, on both sides, then wrap it with kitchen plastic wrap. And pin my snowflakes using rust proof T-pins. I'm an impatient person, I blow dry my snowflakes to dry it quickly.
