These paper snowflakes are surprisingly simple to make! Here's a tutorial that you can use if you want to try. I made mine a lot smaller so they could be Christmas tree ornaments, so I had to use glue instead of staples.



I used pages from my falling-apart thrift store Shakespeare collection; these ones are made from Coriolanus. Cheesy



They were a bit fiddly to make on this scale - sometimes I used tiny clothespins to hold the curls together as they dried. But I think the result was well worth it!



I also made some colorful ones with plain origami paper.





Thanks for looking!

They look so much more fussy than they really are to make! Very ornate! I really like the scale you worked it...they'd be so fab on a banner as well!  Wink
