Use the most colorful pages to make vibrant snowflake patterns or go with the black and white text pages for more simplistic paper snowflakes.

I am always looking for ways to recycle and this is a great idea. It is relaxing just sitting and cutting out these snowflakes and you can decorate so much with them. I can add them to presents, decorate a card, make a garland, decorate my walls and doors. Thank you for the pattern. It is good exercise for the fingers as well.

I love that you use something so simple that most of us would toss out without a care to create a stunning way to decorate for the holidays or winter even. What a great idea for a fun afternoon with the kids or when you are bored. Love it!

These look great!! Now I know what to do with all that junk mail, and I bet my kids would love this too!! They would look really nice as a garland too, or you could even decorate your windows or your front door with them. Thanks for sharing such an easy craft!!
