How to Make Paper Snowflakes?

Materials: Paper and scissors.

  1. Fold the paper in half: Start with a square piece of paper. Fold the paper in half diagonally to make a triangle
  2. Fold into another triangle: Now, fold the triangle in half so the pointy corners meet.
  3. Fold into thirds.
  4. Fold and make adjustments: Fold in half so there is one point facing up and two points on the bottom. You may need to adjust the fold a little to get the sides to match up, so don’t crease the paper until the folds are just right.
  5. Cut across bottom: Cut across the bottom of your paper (cutting off the two points) so that it is straight.
  6. Cut lines into triangle: Cut the folded paper with variations of straight and curvy lines. Get creative with your snowflake designs by experimenting with different sizes and shapes of cutouts.
  7. Unfold paper: Gently unfold the paper to see your unique snowflake. Use poster putty to attach to windowpanes, or make a wreath of snowflakes by sticking them one at a time to a wall with poster putty.

Enjoy your new winter decorations!
