Dear Reader,

It’s a gray but warm (!!!) day out. In keeping up with something incongruous, I thought I’d make snowflakes. Yup, today’s project is to make snowflakes.

There are several tutorials depending on how many points you think a snowflake has (the accurate one seems to be 6, but I really have no idea. All I know is, the more points there are, the more difficult it is to cut).

Here’s how to make 5 pointed snowflakes. The 6-pointed one is here. And this one has templates.

Some tips:
-I used printer paper. You can cut it out into squares- the snowflakes are very forgiving of folds since you’ll be cutting lots of things out.

-If some of the points lose bits and pieces, that’s okay. Real snowflakes rarely stay intact, anyway.

-Inserting the unfolded snowflake between books carefully will help flatten them.

Have fun!


P.S. Some of the camellias are in bloom right now.
