Snowflakes can be put around, hung on the tree, glued to the window, stuck to the ceiling, turned into elegant garland to use as napkins for the holiday table – it all depends on the size and type of paper you are using and how long you want them to spend.

To make this snowflake, you will need next items and tools:

  • 6 square piece of paper the same size
  • scissors
  • ruler
  • pencil
  • scotch tape
  • stapler
  • thread or other material to hang snowflakes

Each piece of paper is folded diagonally, then draw on it with a ruler of your future cuts.

Cuts planned cuts.

Begin to twist it to form a snowflake out of paper, tape them with the scotch tape.

The next “frame”, the future of paper snowflakes twists already in another direction. Alternate sides, we get six blocks:

In each half of  the snowflake, we are doing with our  hands, will be three such blocks, held together by staples:

Snowflake halves are fastened together, using the stapler.

Blocks also are fastened together, in one of these fixtures insert a thread for hanging:

Snowflakes can be made of different colors, textures and sizes can vary, as well as the notches. It all depends on your liking, the interior and the amount of paper.

Once you are done with that, for an added touch, you can use any available foil or color film, and finished the snowflake with it or some glitter!

This was not a new idea, but nonetheless a simple and stylish idea.

I wish you success in transforming the surrounding space in a joyful New Year or special occasion!
