Make Your Own Intricate Paper Snowflakes

Here is a family tradition I unintentionally started when I first had my daughter. I suddenly had a lot of indoor time that winter and started tinkering around with paper snowflakes. I found this basic tutorial and quickly got the bug.

Making snowflakes has become something that our family does around the kitchen table late into the night with coffee and cookies. We find a childlike enjoyment making these surprises that unfold in intricate designs.

I still have some hanging around the house that I laminated that first year.

If you aren't in the mood for paper, try your hand at this fun Virtual snowflake maker:

I love snowflakes too!
I put a link on my blog today.
I hope that's ok.
It's a very small blog.
Happy Holidays!
