NUO Challenge #13 Uncle Chris’s Snowflakes


013

This is an ornament I’ve wanted to make since I first saw it on How About Orange, many years ago.  For one reason or another it never seemed to happen.  Then my brother, Chris, tried to explain this awesome ornament he thought the kids and I would like to make.  I thought it sounded familiar but it wasn’t until I watched his tutorial that I realized it was the same ornament!  No more excuses – it’s time to make this paper snowflake ornament.

Supplies

  • paper, cut into squares…I used a 3 inch square
  • glue
  • scissors

Directions

Sorry I couldn’t figure out how to embed the video…here is a link to it…hope it works.  Here’s a quick video of us watching and making with Uncle Chris!

At first the kids followed along with a little help but as you can tell in the video, I think they we’re just worn out from a long day.  They abandoned me but that’s okay I had fun making these.

While this paper ornament is good on it’s own, you know I’m going to take it one step further, ala How About Orange.  After I had five of them made I carefully glued them together.  Viola!

Don’t forget tomorrow Heather from the Sewing Loft will be sharing an ornament with us!
