Being away from home for Christmas this year, we thought it was a great idea to put up a tree and trying to decorating it using only items with what we had around the apartment. I ended up cutting some paper snowflakes as a side thing but they turned out so well that we put them all over the tree. It only took me 15 mins to cut out a ton of these little intricate snowflake-rs.
Its so easy, as simple as folding a small 3" x 3" square of paper in half, and than in half again, and then start slashing. I tried to not think so much about how to cut them, I just went with it and that seemed to work much better.
