Six-Sided Snowflake Paper Craft
I have always loved making snowflakes! There something about the awe of unfolding and seeing what all of your random cuts and shapes have created.
I actually created these snowflakes a few years back, but we were in the middle of moving so I never wrote about it. This year was the first time we have made them since and they are just as pretty as I remembered!
The inked edges give this six-sided snowflake paper craft a finished look. Which makes them perfect for any winter projects you might have.

How to cut a snowflake
First, we need to make our snowflakes. These instructions will help you to make a six-sided snowflake.
Start by cutting your paper into a square. Then fold it into a triangle. Then fold that triangle in half.
Now to get the six sides you have to fold this triangle into thirds. Start by folding one side towards the middle leaving about the same sized piece next to it. Then fold the other side over the top. Sometimes it takes a little wiggling to get it just right. Once you fold a few it gets pretty easy.
Cut off the points along the straight line.
Let your little one draw with a pencil what they want you to cut out.
Use nice sharp scissors to cut out their shapes.
On a piece of scratch paper take your marker and trace along the cut lines of your snowflake. Flip over and do the same thing on the back side.
Then unfold to see your beautiful creation!
Cutting a six-sided snowflake is always so much fun to do as a family and adding colors really make them pop!
