What’s New

Version 1.4.3

We’ve added some great new features to make creating snowflakes with The Flake Factory even better!

Tap the new Tools button to select a shape to use to create a new Cut or Paste. Tap on the slice to place the shape or drag it to the desired location and release. You can also use a pinch gesture to change the size of the shape for even greater variety.

Don’t see the shape you want? Tap the Shape Creation button to make your own shapes to add to your snowflakes. The new shape creation and editor tool uses the same drawing features as the snowflake creation tool so you can create intricate compound designs and use them again and again.

Tap the new Mirror button to create a mirror copy of a Cut or Paste on the opposite side of the slice. Mirror makes it much easier to create intricate symmetrical patterns.

We’ve also added a Redo button and made improvements to the Undo feature to completely undo adding a Feather, Spike, or Shape with a single tap.

Includes other minor updates and bug fixes.

Holiday or anytime kid and adult fun!

A no mess way to create classic paper cut snowflakes. Very easy to cut or paste snowflakes. Best results using 12 folds, but options for fewer. Cut using finger taps or pre-made shapes. Ability to make custom shape stamps.

Color picker plus transparency and you can even add another layer of shapes over your snowflake in paste mode. Easily change the background of the snowfall animation on the menu page and you can even run a slideshow of your flakes.

Share flakes in different ways as an image, pdf or editable file. Export to other apps. Drag and drop function with iOS 11.

One option I would like to see is a snowfall animation screen without the menu overlay (keeping the option to change the photo background of course).

Relaxing Fun for those who like the simple pleasures.

SNOW much fun!

Love, love, love this app. Was never good at making paper snowflakes, but this has turned me into a pro. Some ideas for future versions: being able to turn off the menus to watch the snow fall in the background; bigger snowflakes in the animation; a vertical slideshow instead of horizontal (so it looks like it’s snowing).

So much fun!

I just feel like a kid again, cutting out shapes, and being excited to see just how different your flakes are from one to the other.....I put the results on my computer screen saver, for a great holiday, burst of color !!
