‘Tis the season for busy days! So not as much time to really put time into involved crafts but one day we took a few minutes to sit down and do some paper crafts. I did some intricate snowflakes while the kids colored.
After getting warmed up with a Disney-themed snowflake (no template, unfortunately, it was free-hand and a warm up), I remembered that it is around this time of the year that I re-read my most favorite book of all time: Pride and Prejudice. I absolutely adore Jane Austen and read everything she’s written and especially Elizabeth Bennet and (who doesn’t?) love Darcy as well, so I decided to do some fun experiments and came up with these Pride and Prejudice themed snowflakes. I loved them so much that I thought that it would be a little Christmas gift to all the equally Austen enraptured enthusiasts out there 🙂 So for your enjoyment, some fun snowflakes to be had!
Elizabeth Bennet is one of my most favorite heroines of literature. And though she is not a great reader, I was inspired by the scene at Netherfield Park where her reading becomes scrutinized by the sisters of the house. (Don’t get the reference, you should really read the book, it’s amazing!) Download the Elizabeth Bennet snowflake here.
Fitzwilliam Darcy, despite being aristocratic and “of breeding” is a complete and utter jerk at the beginning of the novel but works at his jerkiness throughout the novel. I won’t say more but it’s not the typical love story, let’s say. Anyhow, download Fitzwilliam Darcy’s snowflake here.
Hope you like it!
