it's been on my mind to make paper snowflakes. i had plans already last year, but just didn't get round to doing it. so i made a snowstorm instead, which i hung up again also this year. i love a snow-y, wintery feel around our home while we're waiting for the "real" thing.
so during the little man's naptime yesterday, i sat infront of the computer armed with scissors and paper (orange transparent paper and just regular white) and followed these instructions (i also had this tutorial bookmarked) to make my own, freestyle paper snowflakes.
these are the white paper ones that i hung up in the little one's bedroom. they look black against the light (look at that dreary weather out there) but below you can see how they actually look like.
while i was snipping away, simona called on skype. she felt inspired to start some herself, so we had a paper snowflake skype session. show us what you made, simona!
alright, so i saw the snowflakes sylvia was making and was intrigued by this simple craft we did as kids. to quickly recall how these are made i googled and found pages like this one here to get back into it, but soon i started "free styling" as sylvia called it.
what i noticed is that the more precise you are with folding the paper before cutting the better the results will be.
