Homemade #2: Paper snowflakes

It has snowed here in Ohio already.  But it wasn't enough.  I am hoping for more very soon!  We made paper snowflakes.  The thinner the paper, the easier it is to cut through the layers of thick folded paper.  We used:
  • coffee filters
  • scissors
I fold the paper in half first, then in thirds, as I drew on the coffee filter, so you can see, that was you get a more realistic 6-pointed snowflake when you're done.
We taped them to the glass window, which will be easy to clean off if any of the sticky tape residue sticks.  We actually ran out of regular tape a month ago and have only been using washi tape.  I ♥ washi tape!
*here's a washi tape giveaway!!!

Oh, you are so lucky to have had snow! We've had warm days and rain lately. Maybe I'll have to make some paper snowflakes of my own so that I'll have some snow this winter!

David has taped paper snowflakes to our backdoor already. It is fun to look out and see them :)

I remember fondly making paper snowflakes as a child - what a great idea to use coffee filters. They turned out beautifully. :)
