Graphic designer Anthony Herrera has been creating snowflake patterns for Star Wars fans since 2011, delivering a fresh batch of designs each year.

For his 2015 set, Herrera celebrates the release of the seventh film in the Star Wars saga, The Force Awakens, with seven new character designs featuring Rey, BB-8, Finn, First Order Stormtrooper, Kylo Ren, Kylo Ren Lightsaber, and Poe Dameron.

This latest bunch brings the total to 57 different Star Wars patterns from which crafty fanfolk can get cramped fingers, crossed eyes, and a big smile making.

Another recent addition is Herrera’s Guardians of the Galaxy snowflake patterns set, with all five members of the team, as well as Baby Groot and Ronan. These join his already popular set based on the animated Disney hit, Frozen.

Herrera offers his patterns free for anyone who wants to create them for personal use, as long as they aren’t used for resale purposes in any way. He also encourages people to share their creations with the hashtag #starwarssnowflakes.

All of Herrera’s patterns, as well as a video on how to properly fold and cut paper snowflakes, are available on his site at Anthony Herrera Designs.

Give them a try. The Force is strong with these patterns.
