Perhaps for the reindeer or just for fun. ;-)



and the pattern:



I printed the pattern on the reverse side of paper but it would be done on white as well. I resized each one so they are all different. This pattern fits well on a 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.

I also cut the snowflakes out differently on each cone using an exacto knife. For example, on one cone I cut all of the lines, on another one I cut only the points, on the final cone I cut a mix of points and lines but not everything...you get the picture. My purpose was to have different effects from the same pattern. Cheating. Yes. But I am lazy about that sort of thing. Why make multiple patterns when we can just look at the same pattern differently?

Light is one of those battery operated candles...no heat here!

Enjoy!

I love the glow of light from inside the paper trees.  Your paper cutting variations worked well; they seem to be completely different snowflakes glowing on each tree.
