Design Your Own Snowflake: Printable Template

For a simpler printout, go to my post about intricate snowflakes.

I've spent the day designing snowflakes for a papercraft project that I have in mind.  These circles were a great starting point.  I printed off the template at a very low density, and then drew my snowflake designs with darker lines over the top.  Eventually I will trace these lines with a thin sharpie, and erase the lines I don't want.  If you don't want to deal with the extra lines, just place this print out under the paper on a light box or window.  I'm sure there's a much easier way to do this on the computer.  I'm certainly open to ideas, but for now, this has worked really well for me.  I could spend hours making up new intricate patterns!  For inspiration, I've been looking at photographs of real snowflakes!  For a simpler print out and ideas, see my earlier post about drawing intricate snowflakes.

This lesson goes very well with one of my favorite seasonal crafts. Snowflake ornaments!
