David Ancell's wife came up with a way to make Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and Clone trooper snowflakes. The instructions are here, along with templates. When I saw these I got so excited I forgot what I was doing. I dropped everything to use my Christmas Stormtrooper spatula (which my mother got for me but didn't bother wrapping, just stuck in my tree) to make classic Star Wars decorations.
(These are Mrs. Ancell's snowflakes.)
UPDATE: My Stormtrooper template is after the jump, but completely new Wampas and Princess Leias are in there, too.
I was gonna attempt to make Darth Vader snowflakes in black, but (1) I ran out of black construction paper, and (2) I didn't like the way Darth's head was shaped in the final product. After fiddling with the Stormtrooper shape for a while, I got the final product you see above. (I used a hole punch for the eye and the uh, jowl-hole.)
You can shrink or embiggen the template to fit whatever size paper you have. I put really really big snowflakes at the bottom of my tree, and the standard paper-sized (8.5" x 11") snowflakes near the top.
I really love the idea that snowflakes are unique and special but these are snowflakes made from clones. Cloneflakes. Snowtroopers. Heh.
Have fun making your own Star Wars flakes, and if you run in to any trouble (folding the paper following the above instructions is kind of confusing), just leave a comment and I'll try and help.
The spatula, if you're wondering, is part of Wiliams Sonoma's ever-expanding line of Star Wars stuff. They don't have it on their website, but they do have the new vehicle cookie cutters, which I of course wanted simply for the Millennium Falcon. But also there's the Darth Vader spatula and the new pancake molds.

I got bored at work on Friday night and created this in my edit bay window:
