Introduction: Super-cool Easy 6 Pointed Snowflake

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.

Step 2: Cutting the Paper

Cut the paper. You fold the paper and cut it to make a square, then fold that into the triangle shown. Then make the three cuts, and unfold it.

Step 3: Folding and Taping the Paper.

Fold the square into a cannoli shape, and tape it. Then, turn the whole thing upside down, and fold the two strips the other way. Then flip the whole thing again, and tape together those. Continue until all of the strips are done.

Step 4: Now, the Slightly Tedious Part!

This is the part when you invite 5 friends over so they can each make their own. Or, you could just make all six, or have a sibling or family member make some. You need six total, remember!

Step 5: Holding and Stapling

Hold all of the flakes by the bottom, and... (this is the tricky part) Staple them together. DO NOT PICK THIS UP YET! THIS IS NOT DONE!

Step 6: Stabilize the Snowflake

Now, you take the last connection on each flake, and staple them to the next one. If you are confused, then look at these pictures. Do this to all of them!

Step 7: FINISH!!!!

Now, your snowflake is fully presentable! You can hole-punch the top of it to hang!

Special thanks to J-Z,

-Supercoolio!

 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.

I love these. I tried to do them before but they left out the last connection step in their instructions, this looks complete, thanks! c:

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!
