These 3D Paper Snowflake decorations are perfect for doing together as a family. They are a bit fiddle but younger kids can have great fun punching out the snowflake shapes whilst the older kids and adults piece them together.
Cardstock or Paper – I used printer paper to make the plain white snowflakes,
Stick glue – I prefer stick glue for this as pva (white glue) can make the paper warp so if you do use it use sparingly.
Ruler – an optional piece of equipment to help fold the snowflakes. I find it easier to do by hand
Punch out your snowflakes. You either want 3 or 5 snowflake shapes per decoration. I like to have a mix of both.
Carefully bend each snowflake down the center.
Add a layer of glue to one half of a snowflake and carefully place a matching half on to it. Taking care to make sure everything is aligned.
Add the remaining snowflakes one by one leaving one set of halves unglued. Fold back the edges and glue a looped piece of hanging thread down the center. Then glue the final two sides together. A gorgeous little snowflake to hang on your home.
They also look gorgeous used as table and mantle decorations.
