So, I was taking down the Solstice decorations in my office, and thinking that things looked a bit sad without them.  I'd been wanting to learn how to do six-sided cut paper snowflakes for a while and, since the best way to learn is to do (over and over and over), I decided to make a few to decorate our cubicles.

I just used regular copier paper, but I think they turned out pretty well.  I followed instructions from this web page:  http://alphamom.com/family-fun/holidays/how-to-make-a-paper-snowflake-tutorial/






I'm wondering what one could do with craft punches and an X-acto knife.  I bet it would be possible to do some really delicate designs.  Has anyone tried?

Those are so beautiful! Nicely done for your first time making them!

I always go to this "virtual snowflakes" web site every year (it's addictive!):
http://snowflakes.barkleyus.com/

I think you can save your designs in case you wanted to replicate them in real paper.

Thanks for that link, it's really cool.  I can see myself spending a lot of time there.   Cheesy

These are beautiful.  Much more detailed than any of the snowflakes I've ever made.

Ah. I remember spending a good amount of time back in elementary school making paper snowflakes. Brings back good memories. Love your designs.

Very pretty.  I have a colleague who makes 3D snowflakes.
