What was your inspiration?
I lived in Germany for a year and I saw beautiful handmade wooden snowflakes. I did not have the tools to do woodworking but I knew I could cut them out of paper. So by trial and error I learned to fold my paper so I would get the 6 sided snowflake I wanted. Then I started cutting pictures and words into the snowflake --- giving my snowflakes a "voice".
What are you most proud of?
It makes me very proud of what I do when people that have a snowflake of mine and call me back years later and want me to make another one for them.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I think one of the most important steps in making a snowflake is folding the paper. It has to sharp, crisp and even.
