Making snowflakes for family members is not a bad idea especially during the winter period. Paper snowflakes are an easy and enjoyable craft for children and grandchildren.
Making snowflakes is not as difficult as most people may imagine. If you could take time to study it thoroughly, you'll find out that you'll need just five steps to produce your own snowflake.
The first and easy step is to get a square sheet of paper and fold it in half. The second step is to find the centre part of the paper already on fold and perform another folding on it; this time, into thirds in a triangle shape.
After getting the triangular shape, do not press on the edges since we might need another refolding to get the edges perfectly aligned so that a perfect triangle is formed.
Next is to fold in half and cut off the top then you would be ready to cut out your snowflake. You would need to start by cutting out a simple pattern but with practice; a more complex pattern can be achieved.
