Cut paper pattern collage: How I spent my lunch break

The other day at school a student who had finished her work asked if she could make a snow flake. Normally I would have said no because it was so close to the end of the period and things like this tend to get messy, but I let it go. It was Halloween but she wants snow flakes, who can argue with that? Another reason you say no to these things is that as soon as one person starts making snow flakes everyone wants to make snow flakes. Not that I blame them, making snow flakes are fun. When class was over and everyone had gone it was my lunch break. I sat down and indulged in creating my own snow flake. It had been a long time since I worked with cut paper and as soon as that door was open I couldn't put down the scissors. These images were created one after the other, with the results then glued down onto contrasting paper. I was having so much fun It was hard to stop. No templates were involved this was just folding, cutting paper and enjoying the surprise.





Good day,
James
