This little project started with a Friday night and the blog post of an
inspiring crafter over in the UK.
Snowflake materials: a stack of white paper, a pencil, bowls and cups in a
variety of sizes, and sharp scissors.
Snowflakes: On the paper, trace the cups and bowls to create circles of different sizes for your snowflakes. Cut out the shapes. Fold each one in half, then half again, and half one more time. Experiment with different cut-out patterns on the outer edge of each folded circle, the interior of the snowflake, and the center (the point of your folded pie-wedge shape).
Have fun — there are no rules!
Garland: one spool quilting thread and a sewing needle
Assembly: stagger the sequence of the different snowflake sizes for a random, happy snow flurry
with the needle and thread, attach the snowflakes to one another, adding an extra loop at the top end for the curtain rod
