If you feel yourself more creative, try out a little bit more difficult techniques and make 6-pointed paper snowflakes!

The ingredients are the same except one thing: you need white or colourful copy papers.

  1. Begin with a square piece of paper and  fold it diagonally to make a triangle.
  2. Repeat this step, fold it half again, now you have a smaller triangle.
  3. Fold the right “third” over, it helps if you imagine this triangle in thirds.
  4. Repeat this step again.
  1. Cut the “top” off at an angle.
  2. Now this is the part where your imagination comes in. Cut away the sides of the paper. The easiest shape is cutting small triangles from the sides.
  3. Unfold to reveal your work!
