Winter has definely arrived. Temperatures at night have been well below zero and the snow is crunchy.
It's fun to make snowflakes that don't make the roads slippery or mess up traffic. It also doesn't hurt that this can be done inside where it's nice and warm.
I've made snowflakes like this since I was a kid. I'd tape them to the windows so it always looked snowy outside and they would stay there all winter.
A few random snips and you end up with a unique snowflake. Never knowing how they will turn out until they are unfolded is part of the fun.
Usually I start with a square folded in half and in half again and then in half diagonally to make an eight pointed star. This time I got a quilt ruler and tried folding the paper into sixths to get a six pointed star. It's not as easy as eigths but it can be done if you are patient (I'm sure there's a good trick that I haven't figured out yet).
Let it snow!
