If you are bored at work but you don't want the mess of making an actual paper snowflake (personally I think the mess it makes is part of the fun), here is a site that will entertain you:
Make a Flake
Its actually fun, making all the snips and seeing what it does.

You will just have to use your imagination, but take my word for it, it was amazingly beautiful.
