Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

With this wonderful book and a pair of sharp scissors, you can cut up a snowstorm of beautiful paper snowflakes, perfect for Christmas tree ornaments, holiday decorations--any number of imaginative uses.
Brenda Lee Reed created her first snowflakes for her family Christmas tree and soon found the airy, lacy designs could be adapted as valentines, greeting cards, table centerpieces, and decorations of all kinds. Here she has included four-, six-, and eight-part designs for snowflakes, incorporating many festive motifs--bells, diamonds, stars, tulips, and more.
The author's foolproof method makes it easy for even beginners to create beautiful snowflakes. Forty-five elegant designs are printed on fine-quality paper, one side only. Simply remove the sheet from the book, fold as directed, and cut out the indicated areas for perfect results. Complete, easy-to-follow instructions are included, along with suggestions for creating your own winter wonderland of snowflake designs.

About the Author

T.V. Reed is Assistant Professor of American Studies and English at Washington State University.

I have always made paper snowflakes since I was a child. So...when I saw this book available I snatched it up to give me more ideas. Some of the designs are difficult, so I would not generally recommend this book for children. I used the cut-out designs exactly as portrayed, but also to use freely as a starting point in my own way.

Snowflake pattern instructions were easy to follow, but designs were medium to difficult to cut. Our group of 7 to 9 year old girls had problems cutting even the simplest of the patterns in this book. In the past I've seen some very pretty snowflake designs. These are not the prettiest snowflake patterns; they are somewhat uninspired.

These designs are lovely and can be used year round as well as at christmas. They are easy to do just requiring a pair of small sharp scissors. Wouldn't recommend for small children who shouldn't handle sharp scissors or can't make fine motor movements to get the edges etc. Will be able to use these for years to come.

Kids love to cut paper and make snowflakes and this set offers a lot of different patterns. I use this book for my classes every winter.

Just bear in mind that "Easy-to-Make" is a relative term. Kids up to 8th grade will likely need an adult to demonstrate at least once and children 3rd - 5th will need step-by-step guidance. Those younger than 3rd are likely to struggle and be frustrated.

Also be aware these are artistic interpretations, not authentic snowflake patterns and should be considered decorative rather than scientific.

If you're looking for traditional snowflake patterns, look elsewhere. i bought this snowflake book along with 2 others. of the 3, i didn't even use this one because i was so dissatisfied with the patterns. they don't even really look like snowflakes, and they're just not very pretty in my opinion. If you want a more traditional looking snowflake, i bought the following book and really liked it: Make Your Own Paper Snowflakes

My students enjoyed cutting out the snowflakes and creating a winter wonderland in our classroom. I would recommend this to teachers and older students.

The directions were very easy for the kids and the snowflake patterns were really beautiful. We had a good time with this project over the holidays.

I buy this book nearly every year, to cut up and put on windows. You'll get a couple hours, here and there of quiet if you hand it to your kids!
