Introduction: DIY Fancy Paper Winter Snowflake

Materials

  1. Paper, preferably thin so it is easier to cut when folded into layers
  2. Scissors, perhaps a large pair and a fine tipped pair
  3. Pencil ( optional )
  4. Snowflake template

Step 1: Step 1:

  1. Start with a piece of square paper
  2. Fold it in half, diagonally

Step 2: Step 2 :

  1. Fold the triangle in half, it should now be four layers thick
  2. Turn the triangle so the base is towards you
  3. Bring on of the corners on the end( not the top corner) towards the center
  4. Overlap the second corner so the edge is lined up with the crease on the already folded edge

Step 3: Step 3 :

  1. The two corners should overlap
  2. Trim the two tails or triangles from the main triangle

Step 4: Step 4:

  1. Use a pencil to draw this pattern shown

TIP: look up cutting patterns on Pinterest or online for snowflakes

Step 5: Step 5:

  1. Cut out the pattern
  2. Pull apart the snowflake

TIP: If you don't cut far enough or right, the snowflake may turn out differently, the shape will not be a circle, it will span from the center. In other words, the design will look like a regular snowflake shape.
