How To Make The Most Beautiful Paper Snowflake Ever! a spectacular - origami like - snowflake deco

Last year, my friend Vero found an online tutorial to make this beautiful winter//Christmas decoration. This year we tried to find the instructions again and they were gone :(

So we decided to do our own “How to” for this project. Note that in the end the snowflake is pretty big.

These instruction are also availiable in french on our blog : http://carottelychee.blogspot.com/2009/12/tutoriel-un-merveilleux-flocon-de-neige.html
