If you make it, it will come (snow)

"If you build it, they will come"

Can you name that movie?    Something about baseball, I think.

Right now I've got more snowflakes inside my house than out in the yard.  
I don't mind the mild winter we've had, but the kids do.

I saw a tutorial for Popsicle snowflakes over on Crafty Nest and loved the simplicity.
I used just 3 things for this project:

Popsicle sticks
Glue Gun
White paint

I sure didn't use the protractor that they recommend.  IDHTBPTBB

And I didn't use any pretty ribbon or fishing line to hang them up.  (packageing tape held them up just fine)

Years ago, I sat with some paper and itty bitty scissors to cut out paper snowflakes. I made about two dozen very intricate cuttings, following patters from Dave's Paper Snowflake Patterns.  Every year I tape them up to a window and then carefully take them down when I'm ready for spring.   Over the years some have been ruined, but I really can not imagine sitting down with those scissors and a stack of paper EVER AGAIN.   It was like a once in a lifetime craft, I guess.

Your popsicle snowflakes are cute! So are the paper ones. I can see why that was probably a one time deal to make those. That is a lot of work.
