Recycled Paper Snowflake Garlands

I got on a paper snowflake making kick last week and went a little crazy... I used the Other Martha's directions for getting the fancy looking 5-sided snowflakes, cut up used notebook paper (law school notes, meeting notes from work), then strung the snowflakes on thread to get the garland look. I thought they came out pretty cool!

It definitely brought back some elementary school crafting memories, but there's something about opening up this little abstract triangle and finding out that you made this amazing kaleidescopey snowflake. The finished garlands remind me a little of those colorful hand cut Mexican Day of the Dead flags...
