I just took some quick photos with my phone of these snowflake ballerina's I've been making!
since I posted about the Nutcracker I've been obsessing just a little
bit about the Ballet! In fact I looked up The Nutcracker Ballet and
found it and was able to get tickets to see it preformed by The Los Angelos Ballet!
AND I got orchestra seating and we go see it Sunday! Woo!!! I am so
excited! I've never seen a real professional ballet before! Ever since
I saw a great dance recital I've wanted to see one too!
Ya gotta love the Dance of the Snowflakes!
And snow does look like it's dancing when it falls so pretty! It
doesn't take much imagination to think of little fluffy ballerinas
floating about spinning and leaping!
And don't you think these paper snowflakes are the perfect ballerina skirt?! Lovely serendipity!
made them (didn't upload photos though) and then I loved them so much
that I had to find other ballerina silhouettes and ideas for cut
snowflakes and I made these. They are a tiny bit smaller than the ones
from the above link. I added lace to all of them because I love lace
and I think it just adds a perfect extra special touch to them!
I liked this snowflake cutting patterns link.
I couldn't really follow any of them perfectly, it's really hard to cut
through the paper all folded up. So I just followed some them loosely,
doing the best I could and they came out pretty I think!
I want to make a few more to hang on the sides of the wreaths in my windows from the curtains.
also think a tiny version would look adorable to hang on the tree! And
I think making some out of special printed paper would be pretty too!
Too many ideas flittering about! ;D
