6 squares of paper, all the same size
with one of the squares...
1 fold corner to corner
2 fold corner to corner again
3 keeping the same orientation as 2, make 3 cuts to about 2cm from the vertical fold
carefully open out
4 stick the centre "square" together (This can be done over a pencil if necessary.)
turn piece over
5 & 6 repeat with next corners of paper
7 continue turning over and sticking corners together
make five more in the same way
8 attached three of the finished pieces together using a stapler
repeat with final three
9 join the two halves of the snowflake with a stapler
glue mid sections to hold the snowflake together
- decorate with glitter
- coloured or patterned paper makes interesting effects
- The height of the snowflake is twice the distance from corner to corner diagonally of the square size used.
- You could go really large or very small!
