Snowman and Snowflake Origami Diagrams

There are very few diagrams for origami snowman and snowflake. This is probably because snowmen and snowflakes can be made quite easily with kirigami (the art of folding and cutting paper). Indeed, you will find that folding a piece of paper into a snowflake is quite complicated whereas cutting a piece of paper into a snowflake is easy enough even for young children.
