The simple, but fun, winter craft - paper snowflakes! I like this method of folding because you can cut anywhere top, bottom, or any side and your snowflake turns out - the less rules the better right?!
You'll need a square sheet of paper. I like to cut a stack of papers into squares with my paper trimmer ahead of time.
First you fold the paper in half to form a triangle
and in half again
Next you're going to take the open end and fold it towards the other side about 1/3 of the way in
fold the other side over the top of that one
Now you're going to cut off the "tails" at the bottom. If you turn it over you'll have a nice straight guide.
Now the fun part - cut away! Cut triangles, squares, wavy lines - whatever you like
The fun part about folding this way is that you can cut whatever side, top, or bottom you like.
.When you're satisfied with your cuts - carefully unfold your masterpiece.
The boys made a ton of snowflakes and wanted to know where I was going to hang them all. I think I found the perfect way and now they are itching to make more!
I'm sharing how I like to hang their snowflakes over at Modern Parents Messy Kids - come stop by!
