Folded Transparent Stars

I Took Two very different pictures of this snow flake trying to catch the light. That's a hard thing to do when there is no light. But what I wanted to show you was that this fabulous snow flake is made out of Wax paper from my Kitchen. Yep! Nothing fancy, Nothing expensive and probably something you already have on hand. You don't have to order expensive kite paper, and then wait for it to come in the mail. Though the colors are pretty and its a nice treat. And tissue paper though you can buy a bundle of it for $4.00 is quite flimsy and doesn't hold up very well and fades rather quickly. You can make allot of snow stars and make a Winter Wonder Land. Then when you are finished you can store them (between matresses) for the next year. And if you live where you don't get much snow a good Wax Paper blizzard is appreciated and is quite beautiful. We are in the South so we really go to town on creating our own indoor blizzard in January. I really try hard to bring wonderful thing to my home that dont cost allot but bring joy and fun. And it brings me great joy to pass these ideas on to you. So....Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....

I love this! You are so smart to think of using the waxed paper. I'm going to try this too.
