Step 1: Intro
the snowflake base is a series of folds that you use to construct many different types of snow flakes.Since it's origami of course all you need is paper
Step 2: Folding Begins
Take the square sheet of paper and fold it in half.crease well. Next fold the paper in half again but this time only crease and inch from the bottom
Step 3: Folding Continued
Take one of the corners at the bottom of the triangle. Fold it starting at the middle crease up about 2/3 of the way. Then Flip it over and make an identical fold going the other way
Step 4: Finish
Now just fold the paper in half and you have completed a snowflake base.
