Easy 8-Pointed Snowflakes

It is winter and thoughts of snow covered landscapes come to mind. And isn’t so beautiful to watch the snow falling. Each snowcrystal has its own individual form. Why not also create a set of your own snowflakes to decorate your windows. These look wonderful in your windows at the holidays and long after Christmas is over, you can leave them hanging.



Paper Snowflakes

For this project you will need:

- color typing paper (or white if you only want white snowflakes)
- pencil
- round object to trace such as a plate or can
- scissors
- roll of clear one sided adhesive foil (to laminate the snowflakes)


1. Trace the round object onto the paper and cut out.
2. Follow the instructions in the tutorial link for making the snowflakes.
3. To preserve the snowflakes, you can use clear sided self adhesive foil and cover both sides of the snowflakes. Then cut out in a hexagon or octagon shape (depending on how your snowflake was cut out) around the snowflake.
3. Use tape to stick the snowflakes to your window or create a snowflake bunting or garland with them.

White 8-Pointed Snowflakes
The technique is so easy and each snowflake will be unique- just as they are in nature. This paper craft is a fast way to turn any ordinary window into a winter wonderland! Younger kids can draw and cut easier patterns onto their snowflakes and older kids can try making unique and detailed patterns. Either way, the instructions are the same and no 2 snowflakes will look the same.
