As part of our Advent activities we made these fun paper snowflakes to decorate our school room.
Using plain copy paper, fold over one corner to make a triangle, and cut off the excess.
Then with that still folded in a triangle, fold over 1/2 to make a smaller triangle, then fold the other half in the opposite direction:
Cut along the bottom to make a straight line across the bottom. (If you leave the tail on you will get a square snowflake). Then proceed to cut all along the edges, just make sure to leave one side semi-intact so the thing stays together!
Unfold and then decorate! We painted ours with sparkly Mod Podge, and also dumped glitter all over them…but I forewarn you, be afraid of the glitter, be very afraid!
While the glitter made the snowflakes beautiful, it made a HUGE mess in my kitchen! And that was even though we used a tray to catch all of the glittery mess! I think it will forever be a part of our floor, but alas, here are the finished flakes:
