Paper Snowflakes

It was my choice for Martha Mondays and I picked making Paper Snowflakes. I wanted something fun and easy that we could all do at this busy time of year. Now I was planning on posting this yesterday - Monday - I made these at work and was all set to take a picture and I didn't have my camera with me. Now let me tell you I had my camera in my pures all weekend and didn't even realize it...so when I needed it, where was it? At home...sheesh!
So here it is a day late. I would like to say that I like making paper snowflakes for the kids, but the truth of the matter is...I have so much fun doing it myself. This is looking out my office window into the health room where the kids can rest when they have a tummy ache. I like to brighten up the space when I can. I usually put my paper Chrismas tree up under the star on the bulletin board, but I didn't get any help from the kids this year. I did get help with the snowflakes though.

Glenda is a regular visitor to the Health Room so she lent a hand... We used coffee filters for this one, it's a little easier showing you how to fold it (that's the trick on making good snowflakes). Fold in half...

Then half again...


Then fold one side to the center...



and then the other side to the center...


Now cut...I drew a pattern on for her but you don't have to do that...




She did this so well...now open it up and see what you get!



She liked it, and there are so many you can make...of course no two are alike!



It is fun for all ages, great for packages, cards or any winter decorations!

Have fun!
