Learn to make a snowflake from paper.
Thanks to everyone for commenting and enjoying! Your responses are great. Also, FYI, I used printer paper to show the technique semi-clearly, but other times I used recycled paper, flyers, and even an old sex-ed packet.

THIS IS NOT THE AVERAGE FOLD AND CUT SNOWFLAKE NOR IS IT COMPLICATED ORIGAMI. IT'S REALLY SIMPLE AND EVEN A TEN YEAR OLD COULD DO IT BLINDFOLDED!

Step 1: Materials!

You will need:
Stapler
Tape
Scissors
6 sheets of printer paper.
<p>this was confusing but pretty fun and will work awesomely for our winter wounderland dance</p>
<p>Enjoyed making it!</p>
<p>hi </p>
WOWSERZ!!! This is totally nifty!! I am bookmarking this one 4 sure! Gr8 photos and instructions! Lurve lurve lurve it!<br />
I second that! lurve teh wording btw &gt;:D<br />
&nbsp;Now I'm a little mad.... supercoolio is not the only one that's made this... I've found it on many other sites.. maybe this wasn't completely his/her/robot idea?
I don't think supercoolio ever claimed it was her/his idea.
<p>You rock, Lisagd</p>

I love it!
great job and that is a really cool idea :) ;)<br>
My choir teacher makes these to hang up for the Christmas concert and I really liked them but never knew how to make them. Now I do! Thanks so much!
Wow that so cool
The view out of your windows is spooky.
These were awesome and you did a really good job with instructions they were fun and easy to make!!! Thank you!
I made one of these last year but today, I went bigger! I just made these for my daughter's school winter party. They were a huge hit! All the parents were impressed and thought they were extremely time consuming. They were beautiful! See for yourself...
I love the snowflakes though they are so cool! We decorate our house with them every year! Nice instructible!
Thanks for your idea, i can idea for my children home work
I made one two years ago, and every winter I hang it in my front window. I turn it over because it does begin to sag. I made one and sent it to a friend. She loved it! Thanks for the great Instrucable.
Did this with kids in my class we decorated the whole room in an hour!<br>Great work!
Once I was done, I saw it even had a bumpy effect, like it is sticking out, round, full 3d.<br><br>Really nice!! thank you so much.
Wow that's really cool!<br><br>Thanks man, this christmas this will be hanging in the window! Great instructable!<br><br>Easy yet very effective.
I wanted to thank you for this Instructable. I stumbled on it last year at Christmas. My husband and I had just moved, and we didn't have the money to buy decorations for our house. I made a big snowflake out of printer paper for us to hang in the window surrounded by some old Christmas lights, and some really maddeningly difficult tiny ones for a garland. All for the cost of a few sheets of paper. :) I still have all of them, safely tucked away for bringing out next year.
I was checking out another Instructables, and this was on the side bar. I just wanted to say that I made one this time last year, and it is still hanging in a window. It began to sag a bit, so last week I turned it upside down, and it looks like I just made it.
Thanks for posting this! I saw this on a blog once as a great way to use junk mail, but there were no instructions. I was so excited I made two! I think it would be really cool if you mentioned the recycling potential for this craft. I used old Christmas card covers and mine came out really pretty and festive (I did have to use 7 though... maybe because they were smaller or more stiff). Thanks again!
I have added extra cuts to this pattern of snow flake 3-D <br>I've only tried 6 cuts instead of 3,but if you are awesome and made 8 or 10 or 12,wow!Prettier too!love this craft and made these last year,then couldn't remember how and finally found them here.Thanks! They look awesome with a white paper chain,which you make from the piece you cut off to make the printer paper square!
this is soo awsome! i made 1 and it turn out great! thanks now i kno how to make a 6 pointed snowflake!
nice...i didn't c this...so i made one..but its not origami..origami is: no cutting or taping/stapling/gluing. This is KIRIGAMI which is paper cutting, origami means paper folding. but nice..how did u leanr this.. i got a book of kirigami and it was in there<br />
WOW!!!!&nbsp;THANKS!!!!<br />
Hey, very nice post....<br /> here in Brazil don&acute;t have snow....so, this is the only way to see a snowflake....<br /> <br /> thank you...
&nbsp;Glad that i could help!
&nbsp;This is fab.... we made them... have several in our hall, took one into school and my kids - age 10 have taught their entire class - how cool is that! brillian design, simple instructions and a cheap but effective decoration that is a little different.<br /> <br /> Your get a five star rating from us!<br />
&nbsp;Thanks! I'm glad that they are becoming popular! :)
This is terrific! I'm going to try it on a smaller scale with foil paper - I think it will make terrific bows for the packages that can then be hung on the recepient's tree as an ornament.
i dont really want to use that much paper its bad for the enviroment man!!!!
This is an awesome project!&nbsp; As far as being greener - you made me think.&nbsp; You could also make them out of the tons of colorful flyers that one gets from grocery stores or other places.&nbsp; Depending on the amount of ink on the flyers - you could go for christmas colors, or winter, baby girl or boy room colors - a little print on the paper could make it even more interesting looking :)&nbsp; when tired of it - shred and put in compost pile.&nbsp; Happy holidays!
thank u im glad that people respect the enviroment man !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
well,,, you can use recycled paper&nbsp; :D<br />
These come out lovely using double sided wrapping paper.
Going to make some with foiled paper.
Can't wait to have a go at this with the kids - excellent instructions.<br />
