Paper snowflakes

Inspired by the recent snow, I’m going to make paper snowflakes with my kids this weekend.  The magic of paper snowflakes is that no matter what the weather looks like outside, it can be winter where you are. And, although it’s fairly obvious how to make a basic snowflake design, I started doing a little research on the subject to get inspiration.

Wow.

First I found a great idea for creating a Frozen-inspired table runner for a Frozen party table.  That looks pretty neat and I’d love to try it myself on a ice-blue table cloth.

Then, I did some more searching and was amazed to find these amazing Frozen-inspired paper snowflakes (thanks to http://www.thejoysofboys.com/frozen-snowflakes).

I’m going to attempt to make these, and you never know, I may end up combining both ideas to make a Frozen character paper snowflake table runner.




Okay, so I thought it ended there.  I was quite impressed with those designs.  Then I discovered there’s actually a professional artist, specialising in paper snowflakes.  Her name: Kit Cameo.  She is amazing.  I found them on the “Oh my Disney” blog (http://blogs.disney.com/oh-my-disney). These sent shivers down my spine…

Kit Cameo Paper Snowflake: Frozen full cast

This amazing paper snowflake features the whole cast of Frozen (well the goodies anyway), except Kristoff!  Wait what?! Sven really looks desperate for a carrot, and he’ll have to wait a while with no Kristoff around!

Kit Cameo Paper Snowflake: Arendelle

At first glance, Arendelle castle is the dominant feature in this snowflake, but it’s worth a closer look. I love the two profiles of Elsa in this one: first, the official flag silhouette on the path leading to the castle. Second, Elsa creating snow from her hands.  Watch out for the Frozen heart and Marshmallow the snow monster!

Kit Cameo Paper Snowflake: Frozen Fractals

The details are amazing. Just look at Sven the reindeer running to the rescue. I can also spot Kristoff’s Sleigh and a happy little Olaf running for a warm hug!

Respect Kit Cameo!
