The Wife is going to LOVE those! Thanks for sharing, looks like my castle is going to get decorated extra special this year! LOL Seriously, I like it, cant wait to see what she comes up with this year!
And they don't even melt...
Way cool, @Ganado But from the Thread Title, I thought you would be explaining how our "Political SnowFlakes" were being made in their DIY Dreamworld....
Likewise, was looking for a diaper pin etc. Teacher had us do those in a one room schoolhouse with 8 grades. Funny, even the first graders got sharp scissors and they were a lot of fun. I am still amazed at the results you can get with a multiple folded piece of paper and cutting it.
...or protest the peaceful transition of power and block traffic...
I knew you would get the double meaning =)
Those are very pretty. I have made these before but never thought to draw a pattern on the paper first. The kids and I just cut and hope for the best. We hang them in the picture window. I will try and replicate a few of the patterns you posted.
@Motomom34 - Here are a couple of sites with downloadable patterns, a couple are similar to the above.

And if you are going to go all out...check out the Star Wars snowflakes here:
Star Wars Snowflakes
I think we will make this weekend. I have to make sure I can find the fiskars, those are the only scissors to use. I recall the kids when they were little using those horrible kid scissors.
Just stay away from the barber scissors...I shoot people at my house when they use them for paper and then the scissors pull my beard hairs.
@Motomom34 I use a hole punch alot to get the middle bits cut out
Those STAR WARS snowflakes are the Shiznit!!! I down loaded all the patterns and am going to join the missus in making Snowflakes, these will go in the Man Cave for that extra little something when the Women Folk Ban the men folk from the Kitchen A.O. Which pretty much includes the entire house!!! LOL
OK...where are they? I looked in both links...
There's a third link at the end of the post ===
Swedish stars are also beautiful and can be made from anythjng. I think the prettiest ones are made from willow and maple twigs but I have made them from newspaper folded into strips
Now you went and Done it, The Wife just saw those and now she is all over the Interwebs looking for more cool ideas! She really gets into this Christmas stuff!
I have trouble past 2 choices.
@Ura-Ki would you post some of your wife's creations? would love to see them
I have one corner I hang a snowflake cluster made from wire coat hangers and just string snowflakes from. looks like it's snowing in the corner. I'll try to remember to post it when I'm done.
We also make one ornament per year to commemorate that year. Christmas brings lots of food memories and laughs
Okay, so, learned a few things doing the first one. Took about 15 minutes.
SHARP scissors are a MUST
Small scissors wouldn't hurt
You need an x-acto knife or a sharp utility knife
Do the MIDDLE first
If you screw up, you have room to fix it when cutting the outside
You have MUCH more to hold onto when cutting the "detail"
And understanding "pics or it never happened" and/or
