This is a very simple drawing on illustrator that you can personalize for your christmas presents this year, and fit it uniquely for each and every person on your list. I'll just show you the basics, and then you can use your creativity and mix it around all you like! Hope you enjoy it! =)
Step 1: Your first couple lines
Alright, so now we're going to make just a couple lines to start the snowflake's pattern.
1) Open up Illustrator (I'm using CS3, in case yours is slightly different in the location of instructions)
2) Use the line segment tool (left side bar) and just create two or 3 lines. If you want a more interesting pattern, create maybe 2 lines longer and 1 line shorter.
3) Join them at the center so that the ends touch.
