This Boba Fett snowflake was spotted at JuiceBox HQ, covertly hidden-in-plain sight (that’s so Boba!) among other winter oragami at the desk of momma and art director Amy Ballinger. (Daughter and rampant crafter is Lindsey, age 11.)
But it was ad traffic coordinator Joe Mertes who created this whimsical winter ode-to-Boba. “A friend of mine found the website—he’s a high school teacher in the Alaskan tundra so he has a lot of time on his hands.”
You know who else living in a cold northern climate has a lot of time on their hands? Our Minnesota children!
Joe says the Boba flake, as well as the other flakes (Emporer Palpatine, Han Solo in carbonite, the Chicken Walker . . .) are easy to make: Just download the free patterns from California-based designer and dad Anthony Herrera, who created them.
But note that supervision is seriously required, Jedi parents, lest your Padawan lose a hand, spiraling her toward inevitable Sith Lordship: “You have to use an X-Acto knife,” Joe says.
You could probably use your light saber, too. You know, if you had one lying around.
