Simple Star Snowflake

Get out the kids scissors. It’s snowing….paper snowflakes that is. This simple star snowflake is really classified as a star. Officially snowflakes have six points. Decorate the whole house with snowflake and star crafts for the holiday.

Supplies

Scissors

White Paper

Instructions

Click on Printables and print the pattern on white paper.

Cut out the square (outer line).

Fold the square in half along the dashed line labeled FOLD 1. Keep the grey and white triangle (1/8th of snowflake) visible after each step.

Fold in half again along the line labeled FOLD 2 which extends to the center of the snowflake.

Fold along the diagonal of the square on the line labeled FOLD 3 so that you are left with a triangle shape of folded paper with the grey snowflake image filling one side.
 
With a small pair of sharp scissors cut away all the grey areas so that only the white areas between the grey patches remain. Carefully unfold to reveal your completed snowflake.

"My family and I have been making paper snowflakes for many years. Each Christmas we make a few more to add to our collection. They provide a wintry personal touch to Christmas decorations and if handled with care the snowflakes can be used over and over for many years. I hope you enjoy the paper snowflakes at www.daves-snowflakes.com and that they inspire you to create your own paper snowflakes."
