How to Make Paper Snowflakes

Let it snow inside by creating your very own flurry of paper snowflakes.

Paper Snowflakes Tutorial

Let it snow indoors this year with a flurry of hand-crafted snowflakes. Supplies needed include: white paper/pointy scissors/glitter/satin Mod Podge/foam brush/craft paper.

Square One

Start with a square sheet of paper and fold it into a triangle.

Fold in Half Again

Lay that triangle like so, and fold it in half again.

Fold and Tug

Fold the paper in half at the arrow but pull the tip of the triangle down like so.

Fold it Over

Fold the right side over the left.

Snowflake Fold

Your final piece of folded paper should look like this.

Cut

Cut across the dotted line.

Add Shapes

Cut patterns and shapes into each snowflake like so. I even added a dog silhouette (bottom right)!

Sparkle Optional

With the foam brush, apply a thin layer of Mod Podge and sprinkle with glitter. Once dry, place your snowflakes under a heavy book to flatten.
