I haven’t forgotten. It’s just that the time for paper snowflakes was found more easily in the quiet days between Christmas and the New Year than in the hubbub beforehand. In between eating too many cookies and spending long mornings in front of the fire, taking the time to make a little something felt like the right way to pass the time.
(PS. If it’s been awhile since you’ve cut a paper snowflake yourself. Here’s a helpful tutorial. It requires a little precision in your folds, but the result is a pretty snowflake almost regardless of how you snip into it. The secret is a sharp fold and an even sharper pair of scissors. I think cheap copy paper is preferable to thicker paper stock that will be difficult to cut through the multiple folds.)
