How to Make Paper Snowflake Decorations
My son Thomas, 6, came home from school one day with these beautiful paper snowflakes.
I had often seen them but never knew how to make them.
Thomas taught me!
Watch his instructional video. Below, we wrote out step-by-step instructions.
Step by Step
Take a plain white piece of paper.
Fold it into a triangle and cut off the bottom strip. This will make the paper a perfect square.
Fold the paper again to make a smaller triangle.
On the side with the “edge” make cuts. Near the bottom make 3 cuts. Above that, make 1 cut.
Unfold the paper. It will look like this.
Fold in the inner pieces like this. Tape them together.
Flip the paper over and fold in the next corners and tape them together.
It will look like this
Staple the “bunches” together to create a full snowflake.
Hang from the ceiling for a beautiful decoration!
Thanks for the lesson, Thomas!
