Unique Paper Snowflakes

My girls love catching snowflakes on their tongues in the winter. They also like watching them fall and looking at all the amazing shapes they form. We decided it would be a cool craft this month of January to make our own snowflakes. Here is how to fold and cut out a 6 point snowflake. We also provided you with some cool templates. You can also cut out any shapes into the folded paper to make it your own.

You will need:

  • Paper
  • Scissors


  1. Download the printable snow flake template PDF.
  2. Print at 120% and cut out your desired template.
  3. Take an 8X10 piece of paper and fold the top-left corner down on diagonal (like you were going to make a square.)
  4. Fold the top-right point down to bottom-left corner of the first fold. (it should look like a house)
  5. Fold left-side at the point over by one third.
  6. Fold right-side at the point over to meet the left side.
  7. Place the template at the point and cut out template. Or cut out your own design.
  8. Remove the template and carefully unfold the snowflake.
