Such a nice craft for Christmas!

We really enjoyed quilling a few of these sweet snowflakes for the tree! Would you like to try them for next year? You can see the basic pattern here (you don't have to use the red paper background)

We used 1/8 inch strips of white paper and a quilling tool. You can buy the tool at a craft store (and precut strips if you want) or you can even use a toothpick in place of the tool. They look nice with 1/4 inch stips as well, which might be the size you get if you use a paper shredder. Here's a web site that gives you basic instructions for quilling

In the following picture, my daughter used gray and tan in addition to white. Hope you try it!
