How to Make Snowflakes Out of Paper

Save

A sure sign that winter is around the corner is when children start making paper snowflakes. They are a perfect way to spruce up a room for wintertime festivities. Also used for decorations on gifts and Christmas trees, paper snowflakes can be made out of a variety of papers to match any style imaginable. This very easy craft will keep kids busy for hours, cutting enough paper snowflakes to make a blizzard.

Things You'll Need

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Glitter
  • Glue
  • Fold the paper diagonally at least three times, or as many times as it will fold, making a smaller and smaller triangle each time.

  • Hold the pointy part of the paper which will not be cut.

  • Cut out shapes on the three sides of the triangle.

  • Experiment by cutting triangles, circles, leaf shapes and half hearts. Whatever shapes you cut out will result in a double-wide, equal mirrored shape when you unfold the snowflake.

  • Slowly unfold the snowflake, making sure to not rip any thin pieces of paper.

Tips & Warnings

  • Glue and glitter the final snowflake for a more sparkly appearance.
  • Experiment with cutting shapes out of the point, which is the center of the snowflake.
  • Templates for ornate snowflakes are readily available.
