Here are simple instructions on how to make paper snowflakes to decorate your wintery wonderland!

No matter what the weather looks like outside, it can be winter where you are.

How to Make Snowflakes

First, you’ll need white paper cut into a square. If you are cutting standard 8 ½ x 11-inch paper to make it square, save the ends. Try making baby flakes with them or use the paper for notes. You’ll also need scissors, tape, and a piece of string to hang your creation.





While you’re making your snowflakes, learn more about the history of photographing snowflakes! And while you’re in a holiday crafting mood, find out how to make a cranberry wreath.

Also, try to make all your snowflakes as realistic as possible—make sure they’re perfectly unique! Find out why no two snowflakes are the same.

I found a great way to make snow flakes. Use white tissue paper. You can fold and fold and it won't be hard to cut as paper is when it's folded a lot. They look fancy, light weight and just perfect for that dainty snow flake.
