This year for Christmas, I wanted to give my mother something creative and unique. I chose to make a tree by pasting together four snowflakes, then wrap it in a scarf with an ambigram (text that can be read in more than one manner to produce different meanings) of my own invention on it.

Step 1: Cut your snowflakes

I made sure that they would have a sturdy 'trunk' and a sizable arm for the band to wrap onto. For the first tree I made, I tried cutting all of the sections at once, but they didn't turn out as well as I would have liked. If your scissors are good enough, go for it.

Note that the left and right of the unfolded flake are slightly different from the top and bottom. You can put that cut in after unfolding once.
