Wishful thinking



The kids and I are starting to whip up our annual blizzard of paper snowflakes to decorate the door and windows on the front of our house. We started two nights ago, and are adding a few here and there as we feel like folding and snipping. I love the lacy look, and usually keep them up through February.

I’m dreaming of a white Christmas... Wishful thinking on my part; we rarely get snow here near Charlotte, NC, and when we do, it is usually not enough to play or sled in, and it is soon gone.

Want to learn how to make a paper snowflake? I described it in an old post; click here to see the photos and instructions. We use double-sided tape to stick them to the glass.

  4. I do the same thing, snowflakes and paper cuttings on the windows and 3d paper ornies that twirl in the rooms. Now if I can find time to get some done.

  5. How do you do your 3d ones, Debbie? I've thought about cutting some from card stock... but it would take some time with the Xacto knife! :-)

  6. We are supposed to get some snow tonight (12-4) in East Tennessee, so maybe you will get some too!
