How to Make Swirly Paper Snowflakes

A few days ago I shared my Christmas decor for this year. (Yahoo!) I expect this is the last you will hear from me for the next week, as I will be fully enjoying holiday festivities, family, friends, and checking-out of the world! (Another Yahoo!)

But first! I said I’d share how I made my swirly snowflakes that are hanging in my windows.

I decided to make swirly snowflakes this year instead of the traditional cut-out snowflakes for a change of pace – and I love them! Plus, they are super easy to make, and there’s no million little pieces to pick up.

To make one snowflake you will need:

– 6 pieces of printer paper
– Scissors
– Scotch tape

How to make a swirly paper snowflake:

1. Fold the paper corner to corner and cut off the excess to make a square piece of paper.

2. With the paper still folded, about 1″ from the edge, cut a straight line (starting at the folded side) and stop 1″ from the center of the triangle. Repeat until you have 6-8 cuts (an even number). I like to cut a full triangle at the very end.

3. Unfold your square. Starting in the middle, bring together the first two newly-cut corners and tape.

4. Repeat, going every other set of corners. Then turn the square over and repeat.

5. Now you will have 1 section of the snowflake.

5. Make 5 more sections, and then tape them together at the center and on the sides.

6. Voila!

P.S. Like my new rug?

Last step? Tape up anywhere and enjoy!

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and I will see you all sometime next year!
