I've been looking for the directions for a long time, too, I have 2 of these snowflakes on my porch right now and I love them! This is a wonderful way to reuse these things so they don't end up in the landfill, and at the same time have fun and make something useful.

Could someone please post a picture or link to a picture? I am having a hard time visualizing these, so steps 2 - 4 are confusing to me. Thanks!

You should also show the video with the instructions as well. It'll make it easier and more enjoyable rather frustrated due to the fact your drawing of the samples is worthless extremely hard to understand.


Make me just say heck with pinrest and go to YouTube for the video instructions as well. My apologies I'm just being honest

This was posted in 2002 so it is very old. Perhaps we will get a new member (even you) to submit a video to show the steps soon.
