Do you have tons of tissue paper leftover from unwrapping all those Christmas presents? Have you procrastinated writing your thank you notes? (Like me.) Well, put it off no longer! Here's quick and easy way to turn your leftover scraps of tissue paper into lovely cards. 

What you'll need:

* Tissue paper (At least two different colors.)
* Cardstock
* Scissors
* Gluestick

And that's it. Let's start snipping!

Step 1: Let's cut.

It's snowflake-making time!

(Actually, I lied. The first step is to fold your cardstock into a card shape. But I figured you people don't need step by step instructions for that. So... cut and fold your cardstock into the size and shape you want.) Then:

Select which tissue paper to use. I suggest two-three different colors. Then cut out a rough square (there's no need to be exact, you're in a hurry and sloppy squares won't affect the finished result) and make your snowflakes!

For those who need a refresher course on snowflakes: Fold your square in half diagonally, fold the resulting triangle in half, fold the next triangle in half, and then fold once more. (This will result in a eight pointed snowflake.) Cut as you like along both edges of your triangle. Chop off the tip for a star in the middle. Open and be enjoy!

Oh, how pretty! A great use for the mountains of tissue paper after Christmas, too. :)
