Christmas Snowflake

 Okay, I had a few requests on how to make these beautiful Christmas Snowflakes.  You can make them any size that you want.  All you need is:

6 square pieces of double sided decorative paper
A stapler

That's IT!

Okay, here is a step by step picture instruction sequence:

Start with your Square pieces of paper

Fold each of them into a triangle

Start by making two cuts parallel with the edges up until they almost form a triangle, but don't cut it all the way up.  Leave a 1 inch gap in between the cuts.

Repeat two more times until you have a total of three cuts parallel to each side of the triangle.

Open up your square piece of paper.  Grad the open edges of the smallest triangle and pull together.  Staple them so that they stay.  

Flip your paper over and do the same thing with the next triangle and staple. 

Continue alternating sides and stapling. 

Until it looks like this when it is laid on its side.   Repeat until you have 6 of these pieces of paper.

To assemble, start by stapling two together by starting at the bottom and then stapling the middle as well.   

 Once you have 2 halves (with 3 leaves each), then attach the halves together and walla!, you are done!

 You can make these in so many different sizes and colors.  They are great to hang or put as a center piece. Good Luck!

  1. You've saved the day! Our primary is in charge of the ward Christmas party (a sit down dinner for 250 ppl) and I got stuck with decorations. Looks like I'll be making a whole mess of these. THanks.
