Craft: Easy Christmas craft – Six pointed snowflakes


Easy Christmas craft – six pointed snowflakes …

What to do:

  1. Start with a square piece of paper
  2. Fold the paper diagonally to make a triangle
  3. Fold the triangle in half to make a smaller triangle
  4. Fold the smaller triangle into thirds (The more the folds are lined up the more symmetrical the snowflake!)
  5. Cut the ‘v’ end off on the diagonal (This makes the points!)
  6. Cut away at the sides. Use different shapes and slices in varying degrees.  (Keep in mind that the more paper you cut away, the more delicate of a snowflake to unfold.)
  7. Carefully unfold your snowflake. (It may not lay flat right away – pop under a heavy book for a bit.)
  8. Behold – your beautiful creation!

Now … what to do with it …

  • Tree decorations
  • Room decorations
  • Table decorations
  • Use different colours and dress up your Christmas present wrapping as below!
