Advent Day 11

"Make paper snowflakes for the windows"

This was a lot of fun, actually. I have a huge stash of decorative papers and Thai tissues and glassine that I've been lugging around so we busted it out and got busy with our scissors. And turned out rectangle snowflakes, utterly wrong. Believe it or not we had to look it up on the internet - how to fold a paper snowflake. The key is triangles, let me just clear that one up right now, so you don't have to turn to Youtube for a refresher:

I also used hole punches to great effect. Simone sat on our laps the whole time and didn't cut off her fingers with the scissors so double hurrah! And they look very pretty in the kitchen window, though I'd truly rather have some real snow for Christmas.
