Dolls N' All Rewards!

Yes indeed! For the first time that I have witnessed, a doll blog has it's own rewards program! I'm very, very excited about this program, and I hope you are too! In my excitement about this program release, I'll try not to repeat myself or become too confusing. If I do, just ask me any questions in the comments below! HOW IT WORKS: You, as a valued and amazing reader of Dolls N' All, can now sign up (instructions below) to join the Dolls N' All Rewards program. You'll earn points doing various things (point earning list below) such as following or subscribing to Dolls N' All, sharing a favorite post, commenting, etc. Fixed point amounts will go along with each action. Also, on special days such as 'National Doll Day' or our blogiversary, or possibly Christmas, we'll distribute 'point gifts'. DOTMs will receive a special amount of points as well. Once you hit certain amounts of points, you'll receive 'Reward Credits' which yo…

- 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*
