Make Paper Snowflakes

Paper Snowflakes do not quite fit with my Crochet Snowflakes but I could not resist, so here they are. I've make Paper Snowflakes as large as 24 inches in diameter to use as part of Centre Pieces for a Winter Carnival Dance.

Paper Snowflakes

You can make endless variations. Just fold and start cutting. Experiment!

Start with a square sheet of paper larger than the snowflake you want to make, the fold if diagonally.

Fold the Paper in Half 4 Times

Keep folding in half 3 more times, keeping the center of the paper along each fold line.

Start Cutting. Here of some examples of what you can do, but the best is just to start with some squares of newspaper and experimenting.

Fold the Paper in Half 4 Times

There are as many possibilities as there are people cutting them.

I used computer paper for these snowflakes and then ironed them to make them flat for the pictures.

Gold Tissue Paper Snowflake

Sometimes they are good flat and sometimes I like the texture of the folded paper as in the gold tissue paper snowflake.

I have also used silver mylar to make very beautiful Snowflakes.
