These Easy 3D Paper Snowflakes are so much fun to make not only for kids but adults enjoy them as well.
You will need 6 pieces of paper for a 22-inch diameter snowflake.
Fold and cut a square from the 8.5 x 11-inch sheet of paper. Then fold the square into a triangle by folding in half once and then fold the formed triangle in half again to form a smaller triangle.
Cut four slits in the triangle starting at the hypotenuse edge. Make sure the folded edge remains uncut. Keep about the same distance between each cut.
Then flip the snowflake petal over and repeat the same steps by placing
Continue turning the paper snowflake pedal and joining the paper strips together on the opposite sides in the same process until all paper strips have been joined.
Glue together one pedal at a time and allow a few seconds for the glue to dry by keeping glued paper pinched together. I prefer using glue instead of stapler and tape because the snowflake looks more real with outshining tape and visible staples.
Continue by repeating the same instructions attaching snowflake petal to petal.
Attache a small amount of tape onto the tip of any snowflake petal. Punch a hole and tie the ornament string.
You can make 13" and 8" snowflakes in diameter as well. See video for details.
