Supplies:
  • Files (attached)
  • Exacto
  • Small Scissors - small are nice to get in all the sharp angles
  • Paper
  • Printer

So my snowflakes evolved from my original idea which was a creeper and a sword. I just went for it at first and didn't do any measuring. After I decided to split up the ideas and do one weapon snowflake and one creeper snowflake, I created squares to signify pixels (1 by 1, 2 by 2, etc) so I could get the dimentions right. I had to do some fudging so that the creeper wouldn't just be one tall rectangle. I've attached the Illustrator file, if you want to change it up a bit, and the PDF if you just want to print and cut.

The middle of the original designs were really plain. At first I had nothing and then I just cut it out and then that was too big of a hole. So later I just added extra pixels.

Step 2: Fold

Folding time! If you know what you are doing, go for it. Here is how I folded it to make sure I got good results.

First, fold it diagonally so you can cut off the extra paper and you are just left with a square. Don't cut off the design.

How, fold it into a triangle so the design is on the far right and it is facing up.

Fold the corner with the design to the left opposite corner. Take that corner you just folded over and fold it so the tip meets the top tip, revealing the design again. Flip it over and bring that tip up to the top. Now you have a 8 folded snowflake.

(hope that made sense!)
