Kirigomi Snowflakes

I was given a great book about Kirigomi, the ancient art of paper cutting and folding. There was a chapter on these wonderful snowflakes, so I decided to try it with my 6th graders. Well, that was 5 years ago, and now it has become a tradition here at St. Helen's, that when you are in the 6th grade, you learn the secret to making these incredible snowflakes. I have heard from many parents that the kids come home and decorate the house with them.

It's becoming a winter wonderland!
