Dreaming Disney - Stormtrooper Snowflakes

I love Disney.
I love the holiday season.
And I love Star Wars.
All three of these topics bring back some of my best childhood memories.  For me at Christmas the toy I usually wanted was Star Wars related.  And thanks to Star Tours and Star Tours 2: The Adventure Continues, Disney and Star Wars will always be linked for me.
The “Matters of Grey” blog has a great way to work Star Wars into your winter holidays with Star Wars Snowflakes.
They offer 10 printable templates that include Yoda, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and more.
I took a crack at Darth Vader to help garnish some Star Wars Christmas cookies I took to work.
In my first attempt, I created a Cyclops.  One co-worker called it a Battlestar Galactica Cylon. 
Part of my problem was my tools.  With scissors only I could not get the cuts I needed.  I tried a second time with a knife, a dull knife.  The results were questionable, but good enough to claim Darth Vader, even though I forgot a few cuts.

A friend made a Stormtrooper.

Clearly this was a success, the key was an Exacto knife to get the desired cuts.   If my buddy and I can pull this off so can you!  It’s not like we have mad cutting skills. 
Enjoy your winter holidays Between Disney, and don’t cut yourself!
