Make a Paper Snowflake Star Christmas Ornament
Don't let the swirls fool you! This paper snowflake star Christmas ornament is easy, quick to make and sure to wow your guests instantly.
For best results and to make it even simpler for guests to follow, use a spiral ornament template tool. Thin, wrapping paper, old book pages, and colored printer paper work best for this craft. Print template (provided) on each sheet. For this ornament you will need six square templates.
- spiral ornament template tool (optional)
- glitter jingle bells
- gold glitter tape
- string or ribbon
- utility knife
Gather all materials needed. (Image 1) Using the X-Acto knife, cut paper so you have six equal squares. For each square, cut along the inner lines of the template but make sure to not cut all the way to the ends. (Image 2) If using the template tool, fold paper diagonally, and place into tool. Run cutting knife along groves. (Image 3)
Bend and Curl to Shape
Bend the inner-most flaps towards each other and curl slightly using a pencil for shape.
Bend and Tape Flaps
Next, flip the square and bend the next set of flaps in the opposite direction from first set of flaps. Overlap the ends and secure with glitter tape. (Image 1) Repeat with remaining flaps alternating direction and tape ends together. (Image 2) Continue to do the same with the other five squares. (Image 3)
Tape Squares Together
Attach adjoining sides of each piece using tape. (Image 1) Tape all six tips in the center. (Image 2)
Attach Bells and String
String a few glitter bells and secure with tape at the center. Tie the ends of another piece of string and tape to tip of snowflake to hang ornament.
Hang ornament on a tree or wall and admire your work.
