Quilled snowflakes

We can’t get real snowflakes, so we are quilling snowflakes. My 7 year old really likes it. Actually, everyone who has tried it, likes it. Here you can see “I” of GAIN and some of the snowflakes. The snowflakes are light blue, and I have a no-flash photo here. That means that the contrast and pattern of the snowflakes is great, but the resolution is lower than with a flash.

Interesting historical note that I read somewhere in cyberspace but cannot find any longer (story of my life): Quilling began when nuns would trim pages for books. The quills used for writing were used to wrap the trimmings to make decorations for pages, book covers, etc. You can see the wiki entry here, though it is not worded as nicely as the source I found earlier.
