You can start by squaring off regular old pieces of 8x10 printer paper if you want. However, the finished snowflake is almost 2 feet across, so feel free to cut your squares a little smaller. If you go big, though, it can make a dramatic star suspended above your Christmas Tree!

Fold one of your squares in half on the diagonal to make a triangle. Fold it in half again to make a smaller triangle. One of the edges will have a single fold, the next edge will have 2 folds, and the third will be loose. Starting from the 2-fold side, make 3 equidistant snips towards the single fold side.

Cut almost to the single fold, but not quite. These snips should be parallel to the loose side. Really, you could stop right now and just put it on your tree if you wanted; it's pretty enough. You can also tape or staple them together where their edges touch to help them achieve the right shape.

Here's half your snowflake. Now make the other half exactly the same way.

Now you can poke a hole in one of the points and put a ribbon through it. You could put miniature ones on a tree. Use as bows on wrapped gifts. They always get a good reaction, and nobody ever believes how easy they are to make!Hello, I thought you might like to see how I used your wonderful snowman paper doll.

The background may appear at first glance to just be white, but in fact, it has a white on white stamped embossing pattern. I stamped the Advert background and embossed it . I’ve been dying to share this idea since last summer.

I saw a vintage photo of a man holding a giant paper snowflake and I knew we had to recreate it for the holidays! To "cut" the paper away, draw polygons (closed shapes) representing scissor cuts over the triangle in the drawing board to the right. Draw a polygon by clicking on the board to create vertices, and close the polygon by clicking on the first vertex.
