Super Simple Symmetry

We are learning about symmetry in math class and we usually just paint on side of a paper and then fold the paper over to duplicate the painted picture to show symmetry.  Well we decided to do something different this year- and I think they turned out really cute!!!

Super Simple (which is what I like!)  Fold a piece of construction paper in half.  Cut, Snip, Trim to your little heart's desire.  Open, and viola- symmetry!  Glue the paper onto a different color piece of paper to make your symmetry pop!  Here are some samples:

Some even turned out cool- like this rocket ship!

There you have it! Super. Simple. Symmetry.
And, don't forget once I reach 200 followers, we'll get this groovy giveaway going.  Do you want more hints?

Since my post was about math, how about this addition problem as your hint for today:

What do you get when you add:
