On Hoth, I Bet This is What Vader Would Look Like

I follow the Wheaton (@wilw) on Twitter. He mentioned a link about Star Wars paper snowflakes. Since I haven’t made snowflakes since I was 13 years old, I took a pass. Today I realized I am unemployed and with all this time I have I could really use a boost.

To follow along, here are the instructions for making either a Boba Fett or Vader. I would like to thank the creator, but as I tried my hand at it, I would like to let her know it is a very difficult process. I had to use a box cutter and it took me about 20 minutes

Here is my finished product:

Upon showing this to my dear old Dad, he squinted and asked if it was a kitty. I even had John Williams’ Imperial March playing in the background! He saw it before I did my touch-up, so I could see the feline resemblance. And thanks to his remark, I’m now reminded of this:

I don’t think I’ll try the Boba Fett, but now I am prepped to try my hand at some other designs! Maybe they’ll have a Jack Skellington or some sort of Muppet series snowflake pattern. Enjoy if you try it!
