i love making paper snowflakes this time of year! i live in washington state, and although it does snow here almost every winter, it never sticks around long!
paper snowflakes are the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of winter without all the hassle of having to shovel your driveway! and what could be easier than folding and cutting paper to create something so magical? i can't think of anything!
for this swap, we will each have only 2 partners to send to. please send a minimum of five snowflakes, but you're welcome to send as many more as you like! also, please make your snowflakes on clean, white paper (unless otherwise discussed with your partner)!
the easiest way to send finished snowflakes is to leave them folded after you're done cutting them. you can still open them up to take a look, just gently fold them back up when you are done. and be sure to be very careful as intricately cut flakes tend to be very delicate.
and just remember that each and every snowflake is unique. this is meant to be a fun swap and nothing stressful! your cuts and notches do not have to be perfect...that's the beauty of making paper flakes...no matter how/where you make your cuts, it will always turn out beautifully!
here's a link that shows you how to fold and make 6-pointed paper flakes (in my opinion, they turn out the best!) http://highhopes.com/snowflakes.html
this swap is open to newbies with a well filled out profile and swappers with a 4.3+ rating. any questions, please feel free to contact me. as usual, i reserve the right to boot anyone that doesn't meet this criteria.
have fun with this! i can't wait to receive my flakes and open them up! that's the best part of making these! :D
