Step1 Fold a 8.5 x 11 in piece of paper in half “hot dog” style (the long way).
Make a nice crease and then tear or cut along the crease. I find that I can get a straighter cut by wetting the crease slightly and tearing than I can by using the scissors.
Step3 Take one of the strips of paper and start folding it accordion style. Start on the narrow end of the strip and fold about a 3/4 inch wide strip. Turn it over and fold it in the opposite direction, the same width. Keep going until you come to the end of the paper. Its ok if your last fold is narrower or does not come out even with the other folds.
Step4 Now fold your accordion paper in half and cut a a notch on either side of the fold.
Step6 Now, begin cutting the holes in the folded accordion paper wad to make the holes in your snowflake. The paper is quite thick so it might be difficult to cut. You need sharp scissors.
Step10 When you glue the two loose ends together to complete the circle, you’ll have a snowflake! Use these to decorate windows, your tree , bulletin boards or gifts.
