1,000 Lovely Things: Paper Snowflakes

I decided I wanted to fill our windows with wax paper snowflakes, so I asked Libby and Kelly to help me cut them out. We met for a winter night of chili, champagne, and snowflake cutting — which is so much easier when you’re not using safety scissors.

So much fun.

  1. My aunt fills her windows with paper snowflakes every year. She made a digital story about the family tradition on YouTube – check it out (a little long but hey)

  2. Your post made me run into the kitchen and grab some scissors! I have now produced one, perfect, lovely wax-paper snowflake. Many more to come!

    Thanks for the inspiration Maggie. (even though I should be working right now!)

  3. Hey Mimi (and Maggie too),
    The woman on that website you linked was my step-Grandmother. As soon as a saw Maggie’s post I thought of Kay. Every year the family accumulated more snowflakes for the tree. It is a tradition that I continue… although I have not been able to find them wherever they are hiding the basement.

  5. These are wonderful!!! Seeing your beautiful photos reminded me of when I was little and used to cut out snowflakes with my brothers. I had completely forgotten. We’re going to create snowflake window art in our house this year – thank you!!
