paper snowflakes are awesome

Julie Prichard

I love Christmas decorations. I do not love spending money on them. Therefore, for the second consecutive year we are using plain white copy paper to decorate the house. Taking our cue from Buddy the Elf, my nine year old and I will make about 4 times as many snowflakes than what is shown in the photo above.

I use this tutorial to refresh my memory on how to make the folds, sharp scissors and plain white printer paper. Thread cut to various lengths will attach these to my ceiling. Once cut, I use my iron to gently flatten them out. I am looking forward to watching them all move gently the breeze! For a project like this, I think big impact is best, so we will be cutting for a while. I'll post a picture of the finished product to my Facebook page soon. Thanks for the inspiration, Buddy!
