Make: Snowflake Garland

Lily panda snowflakes

A panda woke up one cold winter’s day and started to make snowflakes.

She made snowflake after snowflake.


She filled the windows. But she kept on cutting snowflakes.

Snowflake Garland

Fortunately, Mrs. Panda remembered a cute snowflake garland they had seen in a storefront window while out Christmas shopping. So they made a garland for the kitchen.

And the panda kept cutting. So they made a garland for her bedroom.

And then the panda’s hands got tired. So she stopped cutting and went to watch Hannah Montana.

The End.

    Thanks, Patti! I laughed so hard when I came around the corner and saw the “panda” cutting snowflakes.

    what a cute panda, is she house trained? maybe she could come live with me. since she likes snowflakes so much, she could be in charge of shoveling the driveway. she would love that!!
