Secrets & Scandals: Sneak Peek #1

And it's Light4theLord here today, ready to give a few more secrets away on my newest project that was announced in the Looking Ahead post! Essentially, you're getting a promo photoshoot in here as well, so enjoy.

Allow me to introduce to you one of our stars of this upcoming show. Welcome Elly Cole as she plays the co-starring role of... Her highness...

Princess Jacquelyn Sophania Carales of the fair but torn land of Nuvoria. I have Miss Elizabeth here today for a few questions about her new role - and make sure to ask questions in the comments for the stopmotion interview!
Elizabeth, what do you like best about the character of Jacquelyn? Well, the character herself... absolutely nothing! laughs But I have to admit I absolutely loved dressing up. Her gowns are so insanely fancy - the wardrobe designers have done an amazing job! And the jewelry and hairstyles and everything is just... stunning. Plus, who doesn't like doing tons of photoshoots? hehe... you'll see anot…

- How to Make a Paper Snowflake - DOTM July

You will need:
One sheet of construction/copy paper, white or blue.
A pair of scissors.
A ruler.
An electronic device to read this on.
1. Find a piece of blue or white copy paper (place it in vertical rectangle then fold it in half. )

2. Sketch three out of the six points your snowflake will have using a ruler on the fold- try your best to make the angles even, and remember that since they are connected to the fold the angles on the left of point one and right of point three will be twice as big. Cut the shape out.

3. Unfold it and look at the base of your snowflake. This is when you do a little trimming if the sides look unequally proportioned.

 
4. Refold it on the previously created fold.
5. Fold it again, symmetrically.
6. Start cutting little triangles, circles, etc in the shape you now have. Be careful not to chop it in half!

7. Unfold it completely- wha la! You have a lacy-looking paper snowflake.
NOTE: Is anyone thinking in the politest possible way, "It's July, strange person. So why snowflakes?"
If I wanted to I could remind you that it's cold in the Arctic- Or on a mountaintop somewhere.
You could make this an excuse to use the scissors, to decorate for something, or make a card with.
Maybe you should just remember this in four months.
I could say that this is my post and you have no alternative. >:D *evil laugh*
