The Classic Snowflake

Infinite Shapes and Sizes
Fun for all ages.

Hang them on the wall, window or from the ceiling.
Decorate your gifts.
Your imagination is the limit.

 

A little warning: this gets addictive! Paper snowflakes are fun to make, especially as each one is different! They look fabulous stuck on a wall, strung together in front of a window or placed over contrasting colored gift wrap as present toppers. You could also glue a small one on a dark-colored card to make handmade Christmas cards or you could laminate a huge A3-sized snowflake as a placemat - the uses are endless.

To make paper snowflakes you'll need:

  • Paper (plain white A4, colored or patterned - it's up to you)
  • Scissors

Step One

Cut an A4 size sheet into a square by folding a corner into a triangle and cutting off the excess rectangle. You can use the leftover strip to make smaller snowflakes.

Step two

Fold the triangle in half to make a smaller triangle.

Step three

Keep the 'open' end of the triangle to the left and the main fold on your right. Then visually divide the triangle into thirds. Fold the right-hand side down so the bottom right corner is poking down below the bottom of the triangle.

Step four

Fold the left hand side over on top of the other side so it resembles an arrow head.

Step five

Turn over to reveal a straight line across the top of the smaller triangles. Cut along this line to even it off.

Step six

Cut shapes into both sides of the triangle and unfold to reveal your shape!

Note: This cut  (with the main fold on the right-hand side and the 'open' side on the left) makes the large six-pointed star in the center of the main image.
