Beautiful Snowflake Ornament
Difficulty Level 2/5

Step 1:

For this project you will need -6 notecards
- scissors
- thread
- glue

Step 2: Folding

Take the note cards and cut then all into squares. Take one of them and begin folding. First fold it in half along the diagonal. It should look like a triangle. Next , take that triangle and fold it down the middle. That should form another smaller triangle.

Step 3: Cutting

Take the mini triangle and turn it upside down. starting from the bottom cut three lines. try to make them evenly spaced out and the same length. Be sure not to cut all the way through and to leave some space at the edge. To be more precise you can use a ruler.

Step 4: Review

After you make the cuts open up your notecard and it should look like this

Step 5: Glueing

Grab your glue stick and turn your paper so that the cuts point left and right instead of up and down.Take the in most flaps from the center and curl them up until they meet each other. use your glue ro stick them together and then flip the page over. Do the same with the next layer of flaps then flip the page and repeat and than do it all again. When you finish toy should have no more flaps that aren't connected.

Step 6: Assembly

Repeat all of the previous steps until you have 6 units. To assemble them take the glue and glue the bottom of a unit on one side. Take a second unit and attach it to the area you just glued. Allow time to dry and then glue the bottom of the second unit and attach the third unit. Do that for all six units.

Step 7: Finish

All you have left to do is to have it. Take a pen and poke a small hole in the top of one unit. Push the thread through like a sewing needle and pull it out the other side. Tie it at the desired height and you are Finished! Thanks for reading if you have any questions please leave a comment.
