While making paper cut snowflakes with my children one Christmas, I wanted my designs to reflect the spiritual nature of the
season. By trial and error I incorporated Chrismon designs into each snowflake. Hence,
Chrismon Snowflake Ornaments
were developed! The special way they are folded and cut gives them their
three dimensional quality.
Chrismon Snowflakes are reminiscent of German
(the religious art/craft of intricate
fun of making paper snowflakes! You're sure to

what 'The Sun-Sentinel' had to say!
"Hello. I teach middle school Sunday School. I thought,
just for something different, we would make the Chrismon Snowflakes. This was a stretch, 'cause I didn't
think the boys would be interested. I was WRONG! My son,
who is a pretty good critic of my Sunday School Classes said that was
"really cool". and it was one of the best things we have
ever done in Sunday School! So much for assuming things!"

E.P. Hoke said, "Our
church has a Chrismon tree in our fellowship hall. We have a dinner and
a Carole sing and the families make Chrismons. (We put together pre-made
packets of materials for the ornaments.) The families make their
Chrismon and sign them. Then get up in front of the group, if they
choose, to explain their Chrismon along with it's history and meaning. Fun and educational!"
Janelle from Sumpter, S.C. said, "We had an
Advent evening at church and the kids used craft foam to cut out
chrismons, "Christ shapes." We used the sticky-backed foam
and then attached the chrismons to small red fabric banners that we
then hung from torches attached to the church pews for Christmas. They
look beautiful. I am planning to make white banners for the Easter
season. Maybe we can make gold chrismons or Easter symbols to stick on
the white banners . . ."
