When the weather gets cool, the kids and I like to tackle snowflake crafts. We were thrilled to master the art of making the 3D Paper snowflakes patterns Snowflake.
It is easy once you know how to do it, but as you can tell the snowflake is complex so it does take a dose of patience along with the knowledge of the right steps.
My 7 year old was able to help me make this and she was fascinated by the process and very proud of her final result. My son just turned 5 and he definitely did not have the patience to help, but he was totally wowed by our 3D snowflake masterpiece. A mini stapler is optional for connecting the snowflake together however, we used scotch tape for our version showed here.
Cut each of your 6 pieces of paper into a Square. Create a square by folding it like this and then cutting off the scrap. Fold your square diagonally so that it is now a triangle. Cut along the folded line approximately 6 times like this.
Position your snowflake like this as you prepare to fold the pieces together to get your 3D look. Begin to fold and tape your snowflake. Start from the inside by taking the 2 corners along the fold line and tape them together.
Remember to always work from the fold line when bringing pieces together.
Flip your snowflake over. Next, repeat the above process of folding the next 2 corners along the fold line and tape them together. Flip your snowflake over again.
You will repeat the folding, taping, and then flipping the snowflake over to repeat the process until complete. After you have all 6 sides made, you are ready to connect all the pieces to complete your 3D snowflake.
Now, you will connect them in the center like this with a small piece of scotch tape — or if you have a mini stapler that works well too.
This is a great time for kids to help with the process. Kenzie loved putting it all together with me. Continuing adding sides of your snowflake to the main body of the snowflake until it is complete.
Remember to tape each new arm in 2 places as you connect it to the main body of the snowflake. After your done your masterpiece, your snowflakes will look great hanging from a chandelier or as a centerpiece at the kitchen table surrounded by regular paper snowflakes.
