When you think about it, snowflakes are pretty remarkable. Incredible, intricate shapes so tiny we rarely get to appreciate them. Have you seen these close-up photos of snowflakes. Breathtaking!
Anyway, back to the paper version. This week's design looks every-so-graceful to me with its lovely loops. Kind of like the prima ballerina of snowflakes!
To create your own kirigami snowflake, use the template below and the 6-point folding pattern.
We'd love to see your versions on social media - don't forget to tag your paper cuts with #thekirigamiproject. You can find us on Twitter at @omiyage_ca & @thelanguidlion
The Kirigami Project is collaborative creative project from Marisa Edghill of Omiyage and Geri Jewitt of The Languid Lion. Marisa creates the kirigami designs and Geri turns them into printable templates. Each week in 2014, we will bring you a new kirigami design to fold and cut. Find the treasury of designs here.
