If you're dreaming of a snowy holiday, you can make your own winter wonderland with these geeky paper snowflakes of famous Nobel Prize-winning physicists Albert Einstein, Marie Curie and Erwin Schrödinger, courtesy of Symmetry Magazine.

Download and print out these snowflake templates, fold per instructions, carefully cut out the gray areas, unfold the paper and voila -- science-y snowflakes fit for both the lab and home.

The Einstein design features his signature hairdo and a classic snowflake in the middle.

Curie -- the first woman to win the Nobel Prize, not once but twice -- has a snowflake design that features both her image and the international radioactive trefoil symbol to represent her groundbreaking techniques for isolating radioactive isotopes.

Schrödinger's snowflake design wouldn't be accurate without a few cats alongside his image to represent his most famous thought experiment: Schrödinger's cat.
