A Different Spin on Snowflakes

















I seriously don't know how I came upon this pattern last week, but here is the website where you can get this pattern and template.

My son, who is 3, doesn't really know the story of Star Wars, who is good and bad...etc, but he knows he likes Storm Troopers!!  He has a shirt with Darth Vader and two Storm Troopers on it and one day he wore this to Speech class at a local school...the teacher said, "Oh, your shirt is so scary", and he proceeded to tell her very sarcastically, "It's not scary, it's just Star Wars."  We all laughed and went with it.  Anyway...when I found these online, I thought I would try to trace them in my SCAL software and cut them out for the tree this year!  They worked great!  I did a Storm Trooper one for our tree and for a friend of ours who's twin boys and husband love Star Wars "stuff".  My son chose the red background.  He loves looking at it and can't wait to show Daddy when he gets home!  When his Dad did get home, he said, "You know, you need to do one of Yoda too for our friends", so, that is what I did!  Yoda was so cute!  Hope you have fun cutting these out.  You DON'T have to have a cutting machine to do these...there are templates to go by on the website that you use scissors to cut them out!  Have fun and remember, it is always homemade!
