Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!
Tis the Season for Holiday decorations and wonderful traditions! I mentioned on Monday that during my annual girls trip to decorate at the cabin that someone there taught me to make snowflakes that are worth hanging! I went to far as to make some and laminate, cut around the flake and use a hole punch for hanging.
It's a wonderful project to do with your children while sipping hot cocoa and gingerbread....or your girlfriends or sweetie while sipping a hot toddy or glass of wine....
As you finish each flake, hang it on your tree, or in your windows for some winterizing with white lacy flakes. Soooo Beautiful!
Here are some steps to this thrifty Christmas decoration:
Things You'll Need:White square piece of paper
Pair of scissors
1.Lay the white square on a flat surface. If you don't have a square piece, trim off the excess of a rectangular piece to create a square.
2.Fold the paper in half diagonally, forming a triangle.
3.Fold the paper in half diagonally again, forming a small triangle.
4.Fold the triangle into thirds, folding first the left side over and then over again to meet the right edge.
5.Cut off the extra flaps at the bottom edge, so you once again have a triangle shape.
6.Hold the multilayered paper together as you begin cutting small designs around the edges of the triangle. Make sure to cut through all the layers. Experiment with different shapes, such as small squares and triangles, curves or whatever you want.
7.Carefully unfold your paper to reveal your snowflake.
