When you live in sunny AZ, there are few chances to see any snow. We decided to make some of our own snowflakes. Wanna know how? Here it is:
1st: make a square out of your paper, by folding opposite
corners together, and trimming off the extra. Save the extra
for later....to make tiny snowflakes.
Fold opposite corner to corner again.
Now start cutting. You can round off the top of the snowflake
to make it a circle if you want, but I didn't. Start cutting nicks, curves
lines, etc. out of your snowflake. The most important thing to
remember is to keep connecting points. If you don't, your snowflake
won't be sturdy. There are many cuts in the flake above, but
there are enough connecting points that it is still
Unfold that baby and see what it looks like. This is
my favorite part. I am always surprised at what awaits
me. My cute hubby made one that looked like
a transformer, and I made a tiny one that looked
like 4 tiny skulls. Neither of us did it on purpose...just
the fun that comes from being crazy.
Display those babies, wherever you can. On windows,
hanging from your ceiling, etc...
