Let it snow, let it snow

No doubt, you want to make your place look festive but you don't relish dishing out the bucks to buy the holiday wreaths, bows, and razzmatazz? Flashback to grade school! Who doesn't love the beautiful simplicity of white paper snowflakes? The paper snowflake posted here would do Martha Steweart proud.  Easy, affordable, and abundant, the snowflakes would look gorgeous spread around one's apartment. In fact, the New York Times got into the frugal spirit in their style section: the story, We're Going to Party Like It's 1929, deals with budget decorating for holiday parties...and guess what gets a gorgeous treatment?
