Making Snowflakes by Margaret Daley #sweetromance

Making Snowflakes by Margaret Daley


Can you believe there is a day for making cut out snowflakes? That is—December 27th. I guess that’s because winter has just started and a lot of the world will get snow during the season. But making snowflakes isn’t with ice or water but with paper. So, I decided to see what kind of snowflake I could make. I have seen some beautiful ones made out of paper.

Here is my attempt: 











I’m surprised that I could actually make a neat snowflake. If I can, anyone can, following the instructions this YouTube video has at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tLprW1BjFx4. I hope to show my granddaughters how to do some of the elegant ones.

  1. Margaret, making snowflakes is such a fun and clever idea. I will definitely try this with my 5 year old granddaughter.

  2. There are some complicated cuts to some of those I've made snowflakes before but not with cuts like that! I do have a book that has the pages where you can tear them out, fold and cut them. (I don't tear them out. I copy them and then cut. I wanted to keep the book for a later time.)The book starts out easy and gets harder.

  4. Hi, people!
    If you need to complete an assignment writing without hassle, then you can buy the assignment online in the UK and receive it on time, which will give you time to prepare upcoming tests, prepare presentations, and so on.

  5. what does it take to be a successful author ? I would say that initial reviews and marketing definitely boost your book. I used https://usabookreviewers.com/christmas-gift to get a few reviews and also promote my book. Hopping to be in the top 100 genre lists and see better sales this Christmas season…
