We had 6" of the white stuff yesterday! The kind that sticks to everything.....so pretty! But do you know that every single snowflake has SIX points? NOT 8!!!
Gorgeous, aren't they?
Why did we start making 8 pointed snowflakes? My thoughts? Because God makes His with 6 points and we seem to be doing everything in our power to exclude God from everything we do, everything we create.
"Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6 And I truly believe the philosophy: "though he may stray from the path, no one may remove him from it."
I learned as a child that snowflakes have 6 points.It simply astounds me the number of people in this world who do not know that!!! And I refuse to use 8 pointed snowflakes - they are fake! I think God made them with 6 points to make us think of Him.... because I see the Star of David in each one of them. It is His way of reminding us what an amazing artist He is - because it's true...no 2 snowflakes are exactly alike!
take a piece of priner paper and fold the corner over to make a square
And then I sketched the design from that 1/12 of a flake onto my paper - enlarging it, of course:
When I cut it out, I thik I got a pretty close resemblence even though I did add and outer layer to the star:
I doubt I would ever do 2 that are exactly alike!
The possibilities are beyond endless!
I cut it into quadrants and then pulled it apart so I just used one layer of tissue:
