Simple and Unique "Winter Snowflakes"



 Merry Christmas!!
Christmas is coming faster then we know it!
I'm always looking for a christmas craft to make for my room.
One of my 5th grade teachers ,Ms.Gwin, is sick and in the hospital, so her substitute had this awesome idea to make giant snowflakes. I'm not in Ms.Gwins
homeroom, so we weren't going to do it at first, but when my teacher, Ms.Turnage, saw them she thought it was a great idea, so we ended up doing it!

First you need 6 perfect paper squares, anywhere from 10centimeters to 25centimeters (I just make a good sized square, then fold it in half and make a perfect one by cutting of the extra paper). Make sure your square is folded perfectly in half and cut 4 lines--each one shorter then the last--on each side.












Then unfold it. Grab the 2 sides of the middle diamond and tape it together, it will look like the picture on the right.
Now flip it over and do the same thing to the second one, flip it over and do it to the next one, and so until it looks like the next picture.
















Now make 6 of those. Once you have six, tape all the ends together (I'm sure there is a better way to tape them on YouTube). Next, fold your tape so that it is sticky on both sides and stick it to one of the longer sides. Connect it to the one that's beside it
and keep doing so until it is all stuck together and looks like a snowflake.







Now your finally done and can decorate you're room!!


Thank you 10&Growing for your great tutorial!!

  2. Thanks for this wonderful guide. The snowflakes turned out to be incredible and magical, I remembered that when I was in school, we also did these, however, after a large number of years, steps flew out of my memory that allowed them to be made. Your instructions helped me remember, thank you so much! By the way, you could try to post this photo instruction on Instagram and you would definitely get a bunch of likes. I saw a couple of similar posts there recently and almost all of them had at least 50 thousand likes! I'm sure their authors use https://soclikes.com/buy-instagram-likes to buy likes.
