The rumor here in Portland is that it may snow tomorrow. What a perfect time to post the tutorial for the 3-D paper snowflakes, right? If it does not snow outside, at least it will be inside. This snowflake is not my invention, but this is my version after making many of these each year for my tree and holiday decorations. For a medium to smaller snowflake, this is the best version I have come up with so far and with the addition of the Silhouette cutting machine, making a dozen a snap. You can see me making these in my Handcrafted Holiday video. Below I share my step-by-step tutorial of my version and at the end of the post you can download a printable template as well as the Silhouette pattern for your machine. The papers I used for these are Ice Silver and Silver which are both metallic. I like the added sheen. The finished snowflakes is about 6 inches wide, but you can easily use the patten to make smaller or larger snowflakes. So grab some paper, scissors and hot glue and . . . let it snow! ~ Lia
