This is a short tutorial on how to make paper snowflakes the right way.
Just go find a piece of paper and some scissors.
fold the piece of paper in half. This first fold doesn't really matter so the fold can be as sloppy as you want.
Fold the paper in half again. This fold has to be pretty. (Sort of)
This step is a little tricky. Fold it into thirds at the closed corner. You have to kind of eyeball it at first then adjust.
Now you are going to keep the paper closed up and cut off the ugly flappy part and cut out a design.
Now you are going to open up the paper to reveal your snowflake.
Now what I like to do is reverse all of the creases to make the snowflake lay flat and not go back into a goofy flop.
and now you're done with your snowflake. Go hang it up in a window or on your wall for everyone to see. Merry Christmas. :)
