Hubby and I both grew up loving Lego toys. Chuck loves his cars and train Duplo sets.  And every year I find myself cutting all sorts of paper snowflakes to decorate our windows.  So this year, I was inspired by this neat Batman snowflake design to create two cute and easy-to- cut Lego Snowflakes.  

Here's how I cut these snowflakes out!

First, I cut out a square piece of paper and folded it into fourths.

1.  Using a regular sized piece of computer paper, I folded the lower right hand corner to meet the left side of the paper.
2. Then, I cut off the extra overhanging bit.  Now I had a square piece of paper.
3.  Then, I folded my square piece of paper in half.
4.  Then, I folded my square piece of paper in half again.

5.  Then, I folded the paper in half diagonally (along my previously folded line.)

6.  And then I cut out the Lego designs!  (The eyes were a bit tricky, so I used a skewer to help poke them out.)

Then, I opened up my snowflakes and got these two designs...
