How to Make the Best Snowflakes Ever!

These beauties are currently hanging in our front window - love them! Never mind the ugly power line...

The best and easiest way to make snowflakes? Buy coffee filters! We got 100 for $1.99 - that's years of snowflake making in our house for a couple of bucks!

Why coffee filters? They are the perfect size, no pre-cutting necessary. They're slightly thinner than normal paper, so - easier for little hands with little safety scissors to cut through layers of folded paper. Also, they're slightly translucent - so I love the airy effect you get when the sun hits them.

We even took crayons to some of ours before cutting to add a little color.

**Sidenote: Check out your local dollar store first, I saw a 100 pack there today. Can't beat $1!! Even better! Wish I'd looked there first.
