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