Carolina Snowflake

carolina snowflake

My mother makes these woven Carolina snowflakes, also known as Finnish stars or Finnish snowflakes, from thin strips of wood. I, of course, had to try a paper version.

The design is by Billie Ruth Sudduth.

NOTE: Apparently she holds a copyright on this particular design, so I have removed the instructions from this post.

You can see several different versions on HGTV here (about 13 minutes into the video), and at an origami a day.

Amanda, of House Revivals, makes them from old books.
