May the Christmas Force Be With You: Star Wars Snowflakes

I never thought I would make a paper snowflake Yoda.

snowflake-craft-@2littlesuperheroesAs the mother of boys I think there will be a lot of things I never thought I would do.

When I showed my oldest these Star Wars snowflakes by Anthony Herrera Designs he thought it was the only Christmas decorations we would EVER need.

As a non-Star Wars fan myself, I actually have to admit these are pretty cool.

I considered cutting these by hand like the instructions say.  But thought that was slightly insane.  Instead I used that trace feature on my Silhouette Cameo.

It was so easy.  I just downloaded the image of the snowflake, hit trace and then cut.  The Silhouette cut it out perfectly.  The hardest part was removing the paper from the sticky cutting mat without tearing the delicate paper snowflake.

But if you want to cut these by hand you can download the patterns here.  May the force be with you.

Despite a few rips I think they still turned out great.

star-wars-craft-@2littlesuperheroesWasn’t sure how we would hang them, so we went on a stick hunt.  Which quickly turned into a stick fight.  That should have been expected.

diy-snowflakes-@2littlesuperheroesI took the bark off the stick and put it in the oven for 30 minutes at 200 C. Just to get all the bugs out. And yes I know my oven needs to be cleaned. But what’s the point when I use it as a bug exterminator.

I used a scrap piece of fabric as the hanger.  Simple & free.

And if you do these by hand I would love to hear how it went. You crazy crafty people.

I don’t know how you did that! It’s not working for me! I’ve got so much to learn! If you have any pointers, I’d love to hear them. Thanks!
