How to Make Paper Snowflakes

  1. Fold a square piece of paper in half along the diagonal to form a triangle.
  2. Fold the triangle in half again to make a smaller triangle.
  3. With the 90 degree angle of triangle pointed down, fold the right 1/3 of the triangle over. Press it down lightly, but do not crease yet.
  4. Fold the left 1/3 of the triangle over, again pressing down lightly.
  5. If necessary, adjust the folds so they line up with the sides of the triangle. Crease the folds.
  6. Cut across the top of the paper to even out the layers.
  7. While still folded, cut varying shapes from the edges of the triangle. Gently unfold the paper to reveal your unique snowflake!
