Since most of us have been making paper snowflakes since we could use scissors, I thought everyone knew how to make one. However, it has come to my attention that some among us have lost this skill once adulthood sets in. For those of you who need a reminder, here’s a quick tutorial how to make the perfect snowflake.
First, start with a square of paper. If your paper is a rectangle, to make a square without a ruler, fold the paper into a triangle and cut off the excess.
Fold your square into a triangle (if it’s not already).
Fold the triangle into thirds.
Once folded into thirds, fold that in half.
Cut the widest part off where the corners stick out. This is what turns your paper into a circle.
This is the part you probably remember best: cut random shapes on the folds and the sides to make your design.
Once you’re done, unfold the paper to reveal your unique snowflake.
Hang them in a window, or attach them to Christmas presents for a beautiful presentation.
