PRINTABLE SNOWFLAKE PATTERNS TO CUT
How are snowflakes formed? The structure of a snowflake can be found in just 6 water molecules that form a crystal.
The crystal begins with a tiny speck of dust or pollen which catches water vapor out of the air and eventually forms the simplest of snowflake shapes, a tiny hexagon called “diamond dust”. Then randomness takes over!
More water molecules land and attach to the flake. Depending on the temperature and humidity, those simple hexagons give rise to seemingly infinite shapes.
