    I find Fly Fishing Scissors work exceptionally well! Believe it or not, Eagle Claw Lazer brand for cutting braid line are one of the very best I have ever used, and can be had for under $10! When out and about for BLACK FRIDAY ( Ugggg, NO) pop in to your local fishing supply and grab a pair! I think we have 5 or 6 all over the house and shop, these suckers will even cut soft wire!!!

    This is the first of the flakes that I made. I need to cut more to get the square shape but not bad for the first 4.

    Thank you. I will get more aggressive in my cutting. I needed to figure the seams, making sure not to cut it in half. We had fun last night making snowflakes. FYI scissors are easier then using a box cutter.

    Try for a fold that will yield 6 points. You might like the esthetics even more.

    I was going to mention that but couldn't come up with the right words...sad on my part. So, here's a picture, which should be worth 1000 or so. :D

    True an they don't look like snow flakes either , more like very small hail.
    But you can ski on it.

    Thanks for bumping this thread and posting new patterns. I now have a weekend project. It is time to start decorating the house.

    Those are awesome! Now I wonder if I can cut out many of the patterns with a pneumatic sheet metal nibbler. ;)
