Tuesday December 27, 2016 is Make Cut-out Snowflakes Day.

“It was a favorite activity in our earliest school years, and many families would share it as a familiar project around the holidays. Surely it ended up with numerous small flakes of paper on the ground as thick as the snow outside, but it was accompanied by a warmth of time spent creatively, and the unique designs that came out of everyone’s individual efforts. Make Cut-Out Snowflakes Day encourages us to set out to do it again, and create snowflakes that will persist long after the last crystal of ice has melted into water as the seasons change.

There’s no denying that the unique design of each snowflake is beautiful, and the ability to create either a single piece, or to intricately cut a piece of paper that has been folded over multiple times to create a string of elaborately cut snowflakes means you have near infinite variations you can end with. Make Cut-Out Snowflakes Day encourages you to pick up this art again, and create your own unique and special snowflake.

It all starts with learning the basics of folding paper to create a snowflake, available through multiple websites and videos throughout the web. From there it’s a simple matter of being creative with your scissors and seeing what results. With practice you will be able to make truly stunning designs that will serve to enhance your holiday spirit. Don’t think it ends there, with the encroaching Valentine’s Day on the horizon, you can take this art to the next level and create intricate lace-like heart streamers to beautify your home and add a little romance to the holiday. Then it’s on to bunnies and eggs for Easter! Make Cut-Out Snowflakes Day encourages you to learn the art again, and then carry it throughout the year!” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/qjIdW
