- Paper (any paper really - but not magazine/newspaper as it's too flimsy)
- Sticky tape
Basically for each snowflake you'll need 6 identical squares (the bigger the square, the bigger the snowflake obvs).
|These squares are 10cm and make my medium sized snowflake|
Fold each square diagonally TWICE. Rule 3 lines starting from the side last folded, and leave about 1cm at the other end (there are different tutorials that rule and cut differently but I find this the easiest by far):
|I'm OCD so my lines are 1cm apart, and 1cm short on the right. For the top line, it's 8mm short on the right.|
Cut along the ruled lines and open up:
Then fold and stickytape the 2 innermost corners together:
Flip the square and stickytape the next corners together, and continue until you have a completed piece:
Repeat with 5 more squares and you will have this:
|I used 5 blue squares and 1 white square|
Because I'm OCD, I have each piece facing the same way (longer side turning clockwise). Stick double-sided stickytape to the inner bits and stick them to each other.
Large snowflake uses 20cm squares, medium snowflake uses 10cm squares, small snowflake uses 7cm squares. I personally wouldn't go much smaller than 7cm squares as it gets fiddly and difficult to fold.
