Paper Snowflakes

Inspired by this blog entry by the fabulous Lupin, I've created some paper snowflake garlands:

Ever the reuser of things, I've cut them from old envelopes, and the result is quite pleasing. I've deliberately not used completely blank pieces of paper, allowing there to be a little pattern on some of the snowflakes. For example, many envelopes have a blue pattern on the inside, which gives a lovely icy effect. Things such as postmarks give interesting detail too. I've woven white thread through the holes in the snowflakes, making them into a garland and allowing them to be hung. You could make lots of them so they form a curtain like Lupin's. I may well do just that too :)

they look lovely. We were making snowflakes at work, with the children. Great fun.
