Last weekend we went to the SWEA Christmas Festival in San Francisco where I picked up the most wonderful thing -- snowflake templates! A woman was test marketing kits and I wish I'd taken her contact info, I would love to buy more.
The plastic templates were pre-cut in designs inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairytales, and they make it super easy for the kids and I to make beautiful, and intricate snowflakes. I also like that I'll have these for years to come, and won't have to figure out the cuts each and every time (yay, time savers!).
The kit includes seven templates, white cling plastic sheets, tissue paper, and instructions.
