How To Make a 3-D Paper Snowflake
You Will Need
  • 2 8-by-8-inch pieces of white paper
  • A pair of scissors
  • A stapler
  • String
  • Glitter
  • Glue
  • Iridescent cellophane
 
Steps
step 1Fold your papers
Fold each piece of paper diagonally in half. Fold it in half again to make a triangle. Unfold the paper.
step 2Cut the papers
Using your scissors, cut each piece of paper along one of the fold lines, so that you’ve cut from the edge of the paper through to the center.
step 3Attach the papers to each other
Slide the cut edges of the papers together so they meet in the middle. Staple the papers together along the cut edges.
step 4Refold the papers
Flatten the papers, and refold them along the original creases. Fold them in half again to make a triangle.
step 5Trim the papers
Using your scissors, trim wedges from the papers.
tip Do not cut off any of the stapled edges or the corner where the papers meet.
step 6Unfold and decorate
Unfold your snowflake. If you’d like, staple on small bunches of iridescent cellophane. You can also glue on some glitter for extra sparkle, but make sure you give it time to dry.
step 7Hang your snowflake
Attach a loop of string to one of the stapled edges, and hang up your snowflake for all to see!
