Unleash your creativity with a blizzard of snowflakes, great for decorating the classroom or house.

  • 1.

    Take a square piece of paper. Make sure it’s not too thick.

  • 2.

    Fold your square in half diagonally, making a triangle. Then fold this triangle along the middle, making a smaller triangle.

  • 3.

    Divide this triangle by drawing three equal sections. The easiest way to do this is to find the apex (corner opposite the longest side). Use a protractor to divide the angle of the apex into three 30-degree angles. It’s okay if it’s not exact.

  • 4.

    Now that your triangle is in three sections, fold the left section to the front. Next, fold the right section the same way.

  • 5.

    Flip the shape over so you see a horizontal edge. Cut along this edge to make a wedge.

  • 6.

    Keeping the wedge folded, cut out random shapes along the edges.

  • 7.

    Unfold the paper. Say hello to your snowflake! Make it even more unique using glitter crayons, paint, or whatever sticks!
