No, we don't get snow where we live up in the top half of New Zealand, but the house was full of white paper offcuts last week and a pile of snowflakes I cut by hand (I know, I'm crazy) for the decor for my DD's office Christmas party, which had a white theme this year.  The snowflakes were fun to make and the more I made, the more creative I got with my cutting.  Unfortunately the paper was too thick when folded to cut more than one at a time, so like in Nature, each one was different.  I didn't count them, but I know how many sheets of paper I started out with, so there were probably around 125.  The paper was A3 size with a bit cut off the end to make the square.
