Scissorcraft is a collection of images personally illustrated by your's truely with my two grand children in mind. Scissorcraft color book crafts are suitable for people of all ages and abilities, young and old. I constantly revisit these images to update and refresh or replace the old and funky.
A while back I realized that I was spinning wheels and running like a hamster to appease the unappeasible demands of advertisers and had almost forgotten the reason behind creating these sites. Scissorcraft is my tiny space invirtual-land where I play to satiate an insatiable desire to illustrate for no apparent reason.
For a miniscule cost of $1 per month, members have access to the sum total of my life's work.
To all members who honor me by finding value in my work through paid membership, I thank you so very much for helping me jump off the hamster wheel to begin to regain creative insanity.
Bonus: to my knowledge none of my images have ever spontaneously exploded and are not banned on airplanes.

As I was learning about all the different snow crystal classifications symbols I thought about applying a few to my Color Book pattern templates so that children and other interested parties could take a crack at making a snowflake based upon a scientific symbol.
Snowflakes come in more than just the 6-sided variety, so I made formats for the 12, 2 and 3 sided as well as the more common 6 sided shapes. The 4 sided shapes are provided just for their entertainment since there are no 4 sided snow flakes in nature.
Snowflakes begin as hexagonal shaped tiny particles of ice that do not shapeshift into squares. Learn about the Science of Snow and Ice Crystal formation.
Print templates on regular or colored paper. Use sharp scissors, and for intricate templates use small cuticle scissors.
Each of these templates were designed using actual snow and ice crystal classifications. Your snowflake will resemble a real live snowflake!
Be as creative as you want, there are no mistakes in art only opportunity. No two snowflakes are alike, at least that's what they say as not all snowflakes are symmetrical, some are just plain weird looking.
