Today I have a fun Christmas craft for you! I love to make these paper snowflakes, and your kids will love making them too.
What you need:
Just a piece of paper and some scissors!
First, fold the paper to create a square, and then cut off the excess part so you have a perfect triangle.
Fold it again to create a smaller triangle.
This part is a little bit tricky. You’re going to fold the triangle into thirds. Start with the right side first and fold it upwards, and then cross the left side over it.
Flip it over and snip off the top part along the straight edge so you are left with a perfect triangle.
Here’s where you can get creative. Cut into the triangle any way that you want to. The way that you cut the top of the triangle will be the outer edge, and the way you cut the bottom will be what shape the middle of the snowflake is.
We did a bunch! My oldest daughter Allison wanted to hang them up on her playroom window.
We had so much fun making these! Let me know if you try them out! 🙂

Thanks!!! I had to figure out how to do it again- I hadn’t made them in a really long time! 🙂
