Chrismon Snowflake Ornaments

Instructions:

Click on the link above to print the snowflake pattern. Using small sharp pointed scissors, cut out the large square pattern. With design facing up, fold the square pattern in half, then in quarters. Cut along the grey lines. Carefully cut out the grey shaded areas. Unfold carefully. There will be an inner design and an outer design. With pattern lines facing away, push the inner design away from you and press the folds to conform. Now pull the outer design towards you and press the folds to conform. This will give your ornament it's three dimensional look! You can spray it with a white pearlescent spray to make it more durable. Or, gold leaf it for a unique effect! Spray coat with a clear coat when completed.

You can enlarge the pattern for younger children, making it easier to cut. You can also print the pattern on a thicker specialty paper. Try a beautiful white linen. Or use some Japanese specialty paper in white with gold paint flecks on it. (I found some at a local art shop and the effect was awesome!)


About Author

Sarah Keith is the owner of ChristianCrafters.com. While making paper cut out snowflakes with my children one Christmas, I wanted my designs to reflect the spiritual nature of the season. By trial and error I incorporated Chrismons into each snowflake design. Hence, Chrismon Snowflake Ornaments were developed! 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).
