Beautiful Snowflakes, Part Two

I'm not one to waste a lunch hour, so I did it! I went ahead and made a 3-D paper snowflake. It took less than 20 minutes. Mind you, my huge snowflake has 6 branches instead of 8, but I like it. It is now hanging on the office door of my friend Laurie. Maybe we can sneak them in and hang them up in covert missions so that a little winter cheer can be brought into the office.
I can just imagine a gorgeous winter dance being decorated with these... hung from different lengths of sparkly string from the ceiling. Or, if I had children, it would be fun to spend one day making their room a winter wonderland. One co-worker even thought they'd be great for baby showers if made in light pink or light blue paper. Tracy and I thought maybe we were way out of the loop because we had never seen these. (We probably are!) Have you seen or made these?

That's looks pretty neat but what is "winter cheer?" I didn't know there was such a thing.

It's just the sort of thing you need. We may have to rush ship some snowflakes to you immediately!

I have never seen those either but they are beautiful! Might have to try some out.

I am honored to have your first snowflake hanging from my door, it is beautiful!I wish it was the only kind of snow flake I would see this winter but not to be as we already have 2 inches and more coming this morning :-(

I have to agree with Jsarber - winter cheer? What is that??
