Was just poking around a bit online and decided that it might be nice to have a spot for sharing neat online generators. So share em if you got em!
I just found this one for snowflakes:
Here is one with all kinds of neat game icons you can adjust:

Moving to Tips and Tricks and linking.

Yeah me too on box generator sites. I have yet to
