Paper Snowflakes

What you need:
 • Paper
• Scissors

What you do:
• Start with an 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of paper. Fold one corner of the piece of paper down.
• Cut off the bottom portion to make a triangle.
• Temporarily bring the two corners of the base of the triangle together to find the center point of the longest side.
• Make a small crease at the center point.
• We’re now going to use the center point to divide the triangle into three equal parts. Fold the right corner in at a 60° angle. Then fold the left corner in back at a 60° angle.
• Your paper should look like the illustration at right. Now fold the paper in half as shown.
• Cut off the upper portion along the horizontal line.
• This triangle will be 1/12th of your snowflake. Use a pencil to draw a design on the triangle. The unopened side will be the backbone of the snowflake. Do not draw any lines that cut through the triangle.
• Use scissors to carefully cut away the unwanted area.
• Carefully unfold your snowflake and flatten it out with your fingers.
• Now experiment with different designs and see what you come up with.
