Chrismon 'Butterfly' Paper Snowflake

(8) Name: 'Paper Crafts : Chrismon 'Butterfly' Paper Snowflake
Chrismon 'Butterfly' Paper Snowflake Chrismon Snowflake Butterfly

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cut with scissors

Pattern Description:

While making paper cut snowflakes with my children one Christmas, I wanted my designs to reflect the spiritual nature of the season. By trial and error I incorporated Chrismon designs (Christ-Monograms) into each snowflake, resulting in Chrismon Snowflake Ornaments. The special way they are folded and cut gives them their three dimensional quality. Chrismon Snowflakes are reminiscent of German and Swiss Scherenschnitte, (the religious art/craft of intricate paper cutting). Relive the nostalgic fun of making paper snowflakes! You're sure to have fun making my unique ornaments of faith! Watch a video too at:
