I'm Sorry, Mrs. McConnell

Seeing as how I've been playing Christmas music at work (and especially Elvis Christmas music) for three weeks now, I thought it was about time that the rest of my cubicle caught up with the holiday spirit.

Sadly, my paper snowflake cutting skills left something to be desired. I apologize in advance to my first grade teacher, Mrs. McConnell, because clearly I have failed her.





Attempt #1: Cell division














Attempt #2: Amish hex sign













Attempt #3: Geometric bejeweled.











Attempt #4: Octopus










Attempt #5: Guatemalan wrestling mask










Attempt #6: Getting closer...









And here we see Attempt #1 by one of the supers. That's right. A 6'4" construction worker made a better snowflake on his first try then I could in six tries.




Clearly, I have some kind of mental deformity that transcends to my safety scissors.

i still think #5 looks like the death star exploding...

you'll have to post a pic of the final decorated cube when you get all your snowflakes finished. and maybe you can dedicate a wall to the "slowflakes" that were your first attempts.

I like #6 myself. You know you're doing good when you can make snowflakes and they still come out in once piece. Somehow I always manage to cut it in half.

you definitely get an 'A' for effort. I personally like the Octopus/ Medusa snoflake. maybe you should darwa on it and turn the tentacles into snakes or something.

I think I will definitely darwa on it. Is that some kind of voo doo?

Thank you for not incriminating the rest of us who couldn't make a decent snowflake to save our lives. I don't know how I'll ever be a good teacher if I can't make a paper snowflake!

I don't think there's anything wrong with decorating with Guatemalan headmasks, especially with Feliz Navida playing in the background.
