Snowflakes – more memories to be made

Good mornin !

It is super windy over here in my neck of the woods today. The canvas from my gazebo is flapping in the wind since the wind ripped a giant hole in it.

This winterlike wind helped to decide what we did before breakfast. So I lit a fire in the fireplace and grabbed a bunch of paper.

I don’t know about you but my 4 year old loves at home crafts. We made ghosts and a pumpkin garland for fall/halloween so of course we are making snowflakes for winter/Christmas !

In case you don’t know how or need a refresher I have posted how to fold paper to make a 6-sided snowflake below. I mean they have 6 sides in nature so why not.

Remember your at home crafts do not need to be Martha Stewart/DIY network perfect. Just enjoy the time with your family and have some fun!

Snowflakes

start out with a square piece of paper. I just used standard printer paper today. Nothing fancy. I folded it in half to make a triangle.

take a side ( I did all of this from the left in case you’re following exactly what I did) and fold it over to create a center line.

open it back up so you have a triangle again. Then take that left side and fold it over as shown above. Flip the whole thing over so your long edge is now on the left.

Then fold that side over so it looks like this ! You’re almost there ! Fold it in half one more time. As you can see my folds are not perfect but my thought is neither is a snowflake. At this point you would decide your pattern and carefully cut it out. Make sure you don’t cut all the way through or you’ll cut your snowflake in half ! Enjoy!
