Paper snowflakes are great handmade Christmas decorations. You can tape paper snowflakes to a window for a nice winter decoration or paste them onto a piece of folded paper for a great winter card. Paper snowflakes, bells and stars can create beautiful, delicate and weightless Christmas garlands that look wonderful on the ceiling and walls, mirrors and windows.

To make these decorations you will need white paper, scissors, a protractor (optional), glitter and glue in case you make a mistake. Real snowflakes have six sides, so you need to fold a piece of paper into sixths.

Fold a piece of paper in half. Fold over one side, then the other, to make two 60 degree folds. You can do this by eye, or you can use a protractor.

Cut off the edges of the paper in an arc.  This makes a circle, if you were to unfold the paper. Cut a lot of the paper away, following your snowflake design.

Unfold your snowflake carefully and use for Christmas decorating. Glitter can be added to your handmade Christmas decorations to create bright and festive look.
