How to Make 6-Pointed Paper Snowflakes

How to Make 6-Pointed Paper Snowflakes
This step by step guide will teach you how to make SIX pointed paper snowflakes. Most people make (and most how-tos teach) snowflakes with four or eight points. Real snowflakes in nature form with six points (or occasionally three if they formed weird) so I choose to make my own with six points. I taught myself this technique in high school and have been making paper snowflakes around Christmas time ever since. All you will need for this is paper and scissors. Some people like to use fancy paper, but I use plain white copy paper because somehow the simplicity of white is more beautiful to me. If you want to view a gallery of my snowflakes, see me on Flickr: Paper Snowflake Gallery. Remember to rate this Instructable!

Greco-Roman-style sculptures that are actually made from layers of PAPER By Olivia Fleming Published: 15:29 GMT, 6 February 2014 | Updated: 16:17 GMT, 6 February 2014 At first glance, the sculptures sitting in New York's Klein Sun Gallery appear to be impeccable recreations of Greco-Roman porcelain masterpieces. Seconds later, the gallery's Assistant Director, Amy Purssey, is stretching and twisting what looks like the solid, chiseled cheekbones of Michelangelo's David into a giant slinky.

Phonetics: Beats and Rhythm –[Multimedia-English] One of the things that makes English difficult to understand for foreign students is its particular rhythm. Many languages are syllabic, that means that every syllable takes the same amount of time to pronounce. In some languages stressed syllables take longer than unstressed syllables, but still, the pronunciation unit is the syllable. English is different, we don't care about syllables, we don't even care about words, it's all about beats (sound units). Every beat takes the same amount of time to pronounce. A beat may have one syllable, ten syllables, one word or five words, but it still takes the same amount of time (more or less).

Paper flower tutorial I thought some of you would enjoy a quick tutorial on how to make those little paper flowers I used as part of my table setting a couple weeks ago.
