In nature, no two snowflakes are alike. In crafting, the same can also be true. This is mainly because it is hard to get exact replicas of anything you craft. If you ask me, this is one of the great things about crafting. With that in mind, read through the snowflake crafts here, check out the pictures and directions, and then craft your own version of each one. I hope you also take some time to create your own unique snowflake crafts and submit themto be published here.
