Eva is bored.
I wouldn't mind so much, but she somehow manages to make that my problem.
All her friends are on holiday in exotic locations, and she is the only one that has to stay at home.
There is nothing to do here.
No, she doesn't want to read.
She also does not want to bake Christmas cookies.
Or watch a movie.
Or enjoy being bored.
So finally I come up with making snowflakes and she agrees, albeit grumpily.
To make them, fold a square piece of paper into a triangle. Then fold the triangle into a second triangle.
With the pointy side facing upwards, now fold the two other sides toward the middle.
You will now have a kite shape.
Cut the smaller triangle off the kite, then start to cut out patterns around the edges.
It doesn't take quite as long as I hoped it would, even though I ironed the snowflakes for the first time ever (highly recommended, they look a lot better afterwards).
Have a wonderful weekend!
Lots of love,
