Mr. Fiancé is a big Star Wars fan.  Huge.  I, myself, do enjoy the series (well, the original trilogy more so) so his love isn't a gigantic pain in the butt.  I especially enjoy R2D2, Yoda, and C3P0.   They are rather cute.  To add to Mr. Fiancé's Geek-Chic christmas decor, I decided to try to make Star Wars snowflakes.  You may have come across them via the interwebs...they are especially common pins on pinterest.  While mine are not as fantabulous as the original, I am pleased how they turned out.  Printer paper, embroidery scissors, and dollar store xacto knives were surprisingly efficient for this.

Here's the website with the templates:

The whole lot...


C3P0!


Yoda!


R2D2...he's kinda rough, but my dollar store xacto knives couldn't handle all the detail.  Smiley


Annnnd....a trooper.  Clone? Storm?  I can't tell the difference unless I'm watching a movie (as the clones are in the first 3 only, right?)


I'm gonna make a garland with these for Mr. Fiancé's living room.

I was just looking at the original photos via Craftzine this morning, these are equally as amazing. Can't show the hubby in case he hands me some paper and scissors and expects some sort of Star Wars Christmas miracle.  Grin

Thanks!  It took me a few tries to have success (which came with Yoda). My fiancé was able to tell what movie exactly the storm troopers were from at first glance.  I was impressed!

Oh, and Mr. Fiancé declared these had to go on his tree, which is already geeked-out (Yoda is the topper).

Thanks again!
