Want to learn how to make paper snowflakes? Here are a few easy designs to make your home more festive for Christmas.
Grab a scissors and a regular piece of paper, this one is 8x11.
Step 2: Fold it into a square
Fold the piece of paper so that it makes a square (if it wasn't square to begin with). You should have a little flap on the side.
Step 3: Cut
Cut the extra piece of paper from the rest of the soon-to-be paper snowflake.
Step 4: Fold again
Take the triangle that you now have and fold it again into a smaller triangle.
Step 5: More folding
Take one side of the triangle and fold it halfway over the rest of the paper.
Step 6: Last fold
Take the unfolded side of the triangle and fold it over the remaining side. Make sure the 2 sides align nicely and there is no overhangs, otherwise the snowflake will not be even.
Step 7: Cut
Cut along where the marked line is. This step is not necessary at this point but it makes handling the paper snowflake easier.
Step 8: Trace a design
You can now trace a design into your snowflake, or if you don't have anything in mind you can freestyle a design as long as you make sure not to cut the edges of the snowflake in the wrong place.
Step 9: Cut
Cut the design out. If you draw a design, make sure to cut outside the edges.
Step 10: Unwrap the snowflake
Now carefully unwrap the snowflake making sure not to tear any delicate parts. Smooth out the creases and you're done.
