Making Snowflakes

We have had record breaking winter weather this past month. Many got to experience a white Christmas for the first time ever. We in the south watch the weather channel and dream about what that winter wonderland would be like…..making snow angels and snowmen are only in our dreams. But we can make some snowflakes.

Paper Snowflakes

Supplies needed: Scissors and white round coffee filters. If you don’t have coffee filters use white tissue paper or even computer paper.

If you use tissue paper or computer paper cut in circles about 4-5 inches in diameter. Fold the circle in half, then fold in half again and now fold in half once more. With small end at the top cut pieces out on the fold on both sides. The more cuts you make, the more beautiful the snowflake. Open up and you will see everyone will be different just like the real ones.

If the snowflake falls apart the mistake was probably made by not cutting on the fold. Just try again. Practice makes perfect. Have fun decorating your room or windows and make for yourself a winter wonderland anywhere and at any time.

    Helen,
    I know that you saw plenty of snowflakes in the North GA mtns, Germany and Belgium. Each one is different, just like every person is different and unique. What a creative God!

    Speaking of snowflakes… I’m looking out on the deck and that’s all I see!! We’ve had 6-8 inches since Sunday. We’ve had some sun, but still have a bunch of snow on the ground after four days… and the cold temps persist. Keep doing the blog. It’s great!!
