Step 1: the Square
Fold a corner to the side opposite it to form a right angled triangle. Cut away the excess paper outside of the triangle as shown in the pictures. This will form a perfect square ready for the next step.
Step 2: the Circle
Fold the square diagonally to form a triangle, then fold diagonally twice more to form a smaller triangle. Sketch then cut a curved line forming an ark with a constant radius starting from the short edge. this will form the circle shape.
Step 3: Cutting the Flake
Using a pencil sketch out half of the arm of a snow flake on each side. If your struggling to visualise the shape try placing a mirror on the edge to get the reflection. At this stage you can be as creative as you want.
Once you have finished sketching follow the line with a sharp pair of scissors. Now you can unfold flake and tape a safety pin to its back. Now you can pin it on your favourite sweater and put the competition to shame on ugly sweater day!!
