those are amazing! my dorm is kinda covered in paper snowflakes right now.  Smiley  the roomie and i went crazy one day...

i'm also VERY impressed with your cutting of the snowflakes. they're so dainty and wonderful. some of our "snowflakes" look less than snowflake-ish...but yours are just wonderful.

Oh my gosh, so simple and yet so pretty! Hmm.... now if only I could remember how to make those snowflakes (haven't done that since I was a wee girl lol)

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

I'm so glad you all like them!  I thought I'd add a reminder of how to fold these (mostly for you Naeleany!) I hope they make sense!
Fold a square into a triangle and then (this is the tricky part) you need to make it fold into each other so there are three sections (note picture).  If you want a six pointed snowflake this is where you start cutting.  The key is to make sure all the edges are nice and lined up.  Don't crease until you're really ready to!!!!

For 12 point-continue to fold in half once more
Cut off the extra on top so you have an even top (do this for the 6 point as well)  Note where the points are- they're on the outside edge 

Finished!!!

Elby, thank you so much! I never even learned how to make such an elaborate snowflake! It's beautiful. Ha, now I know what to do with some of the paper I've got lying around Smiley

You just made my life 10 times better!! I'm having a holiday party and was thinking of making doorway curtains out of paper snowflakes, but I was worried it would look too cheesy. Not if they're wax covered!! They'll look uber classy and unique!
