I've been attending an art class run by my friend and we do all kinds of different activities - everything from painting and sketching to making collages with Japanese paper. Right now we are doing scherenschnitte aka paper cutting. We've spent many a happy hour making snowflakes.
My favourite snowflake is the one in the photo below. So far that is!
I took photos of the steps involved in making the six point snowflake - more so I would remember how to do it than anything. They are so much fun that you really should give it a try. If you do attempt to make a snowflake and can't figure out my instructions, then please let me know and I will try to explain it better.
I didn't put the very first step down - which is to make a perfectly square piece of paper (done by folding a paper into a triangle and removing the part of the paper that sticks past the triangle).
and this one of a gorgeous collection of snowflakes covering a window.
