The Sunday Night Non-Aggravating Craft

Contrary to what I usually spout, I DO like being crafty. However (in my ripe old age) I don't have the inclination for big projects (unless its curtains or something to beautify the house, then I plug away) and its definitely not something I enjoy taking up my evenings. Given the choice between a great book and a craft, the book wins every time.

I do enjoy, a quick, fun craft, and this 3D snowflake is exactly that. I whipped up 2 tonight, one by myself, then one with K. Very fun and absolutely beautiful when you're done! Its hard to believe it's made with paper.

Tutorial below:

I would like to find some silver paper next and try it, the possibilties are endless! We will be making quite a few more to hang from the ceiling in the house, I just love' em. Mr K helped out, but this is a great one for an older child to attempt by themselves.

Cool, someone else sent me a link to that earlier this week too. I liked all my black paper decorations for halloween and was thinking white and red paper for christmas.. cheap, recyclable and pretty. I might have to go watch Elf for inspiration.
