I wanted to create a winter wonderland scene in my kids’ room this Christmas using a tree branch, lights, and paper snowflakes. I will share that post next week.
I decided to do this in two separate posts after I discovered how maddening making paper snowflakes was. It wasn’t bad after I finally figured it out, but it was a long journey there 🙂
My memories from elementary school making these do not include the specifics of folding the paper. I just remember cutting and snipping and opening up beautiful paper snowflakes.
I assumed this was a simple little thing that any kid could do so I just folded up some paper and snip snipped.
Here was my first snowflake.
I tried again and got this.
I finally wised up and looked up videos on You Tube on how to make these. I watched a couple and made this.
Seriously. What is going on?
I finally got it and then wasn’t sure how to share on a blog post how to do it. I decided the best way would be on a video. I’ve never made a You Tube video before but here is my attempt. I hope that I can spare you the pain and suffering that I endured. On the bright side, once you get it, they are kind of fun to make!
