Lately I've been enamored with the idea of cutting fancy snowflakes, but I  \may just give up that after seeing these.  They're amazing!  I sure hope you frame them or something to preserve them.  They're too wonderful to rusk having them wander around unprotected!

 Shocked  I could never (and still can't) make a paper snowflake.  It's astonishing, I know, but it's the troof.  I am completely in awe of your snowflake-ish making abilities!!

Life isn't complete 'til you crochet a uterus for a friend.  Just make sure your fallopian tubes point down and not up! No one needs to lose an eye this way! Wink

I love personal swaps for small stuff (including Hershey Kisses!)! PM me for happy fun rockin' good times!

Wow, thanks for all the loverly comments! I'm a little overwhelmed by the amount of response, actually. : P You flatter me.

To TheMistressT, do you mean I've made you not want to attempt fancy snowflakes? D : If so, I'm sorry. You should still do it!

Yeah.  I just think I'm going to be disappointed with my outcome and I'm just not a huge fan of xacto cutting.  Kind of hurts my neck, but I still may do it.  You should never be sorry for creating and sharing beauty!

Kick-butt job on these! Your bear threat one is my fave. If I were you, I'd mount these in a floating frame (the kind with two panes of glass that sandwich your piece) and show 'em off - they rock!  Woo Hoo to you! Grin

These are really good.  Those cherry branches are beautiful and a nice reminder that spring will come again. 

I know this is a traditional craft for some cultures and they even have really nice and special scissors for their work. 

Folding your paper into 6ths helps to give more of a snowflake look. First,start by folding the square in half and then fudge around untill you get them folded into thirds.  If you have a protractor, you can use it to draw marks at 60o.   I used to do this with my kids when they were younger and also with students in school.
