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.

Make about 8-10 of these.
When you have enough, staple them together at the top.
