Two Sundays ago, one of the girls at our Family Nite service at church showed us all how to make these beautiful snowflakes! Since we can’t always depend on the real thing here in the PNW, I made some to hang in our living room windows…
Apparently the outside was jealous of how wintery it looked inside… ;o)
1. Fold your piece of paper (don’t use heavy cardstock paper) so that you have a square. We used some old legal-sized paper. If you use an 8.5x11 piece, you’ll have less waste. Cut off the rectangle piece left over.
5. Open up the square. Bring the two loose ends together and tape into a roll. Be sure to use invisible scotch tape. You can make the roll as tight or as loose as you want. Just do each of the pieces the same way.
*This is where the pics start to get a bit hard to see… Sorry about the white on white!
10. Tape 3 of the sections together in the middle where your points joined. Make sure they are all going the same direction. Unlike in this pic… Oops! ;o)
I left mine just plain, but the girls at church added some sparkle to their snowflakes!
It was also way too big to make a snowflake out of! But I think they would look lovely hanging just like that! Decorations for next Christmas???
