I waited far too long to figure out what my ‘I Never’ for today would be. It was 9:30 p.m. and all I wanted to do was go to bed, but I couldn’t think of one darn thing I did today that I’d never done before. There were snowflake remnants all over my desk which sparked a memory of my friend mentioning Star Wars snowflakes. So I Googled it and found a video tutorial and templates at this site.
I printed out the template, found my exact-o knife, and started folding and cutting. I probably should have watched the video, but I wanted to get moving on this, so I just plowed ahead. Todd was in bed and asked, “What are doing still up?” and I replied “Making an x-wing snowflake!”
Finally it was time for the big reveal, so I gently unfolded it, and it looked amazing. It was barely connected at the corners, so I obviously did something wrong, but I really loved it. I can’t wait to tape it to our front window and show it off.
