My name is Jaimey and I live in Salt Lake City, UT. I love to play in nature, go on adventures, and keep myself as healthy as possible. To stay mentally and physically healthy, I play with my dog, fly fish, cook, craft, and spend time in the wild. I cook mostly vegan and love the challenge of finding creative alternatives to animal products. I like to make up my own things, so most of my sewing and cooking that I blog about are new pieces of art.

In my last post (12/21/12) I said I would let you know how my handmade 3-D snowflakes turned out. See my photo's below. I can't believe how easy and beautiful they are.
The top snowflake is made from ruled paper from my notebook.
The bottom snowflake is made from note cards.
If you want to make one yourself, you will need:
6 squares of paper
Fold your paper in half. If your folded paper does not make a triangle, then cut the excess paper and to make a triangle.
Make three cuts on each side of the triangle, cutting from the folded side.
Roll up two points, and tape.
Turn over, roll up, and tape.
Repeat until all sides are folded up.
Follow those steps for five more squares, until you have six rolled up squares.
Staple three rolledsquares together.
Staple the remaining three to the three you just stapled.
Staple the touching points to one another to keep the shape of the snowflake.
This is what your snowflake should look like when you are done.
This is super easy and ends up to be a unique decoration for your home.
