Easy 3D Paper Snowflakes
You Will Need
- White cardstock
- Guillotine cutting board or ruler
- Unsharpened pencil
Cut paper into ½ to 1-inch strips, depending on how thick you want each snowflake. If you are using a paper guillotine you can pre-cut the paper strips for your kids so they don’t have to use scissors or anything sharp. Just supply them with the paper strips, pencil, and gluestick.
Wrap the paper strips around a pencil to create the curls. The design of your snowflake can change depending on how tightly you wrap the paper.
Create a snowflake shape by gluing the pieces of paper together. This takes a little creativity but is so rewarding.
- Remember that snowflakes are symmetrical. (Makes a great challenge for older kids.)
- To create pointed tips on the snowflakes, Fold strips of paper in half and use the fold as the point.
- Make the snowflakes as simple or as elaborate as desired.
- Hang the snowflakes as decorations using thin thread or fishing line.
