Bored by the snowflake, I decided to make something slightly more challenging; a flower! It still fits in the given dimensions for the project, and should stand very well on its on.
I am realized sketching isn't my strength for communication of ideas, because none of my initial ideas make it. The snowflake I liked, because it seemed to fit with other game piece type items; has relatively little complicated detail (perfect for the injection molding required to produce millions of little monopoly pieces).
