When I first saw one of these elaborate snowflakes online, my immediate thought was, “Yeah, sure. Way too hard.”
Then, I looked at the directions more closely and thought, “Well, maybe if I put my glasses on and wait until it’s totally quiet in the house and I can concentrate.” Sadly, this house is never totally quiet, so that was out.
But after looking even closer I found that even if you have little kids running all over the place or you’re surrounded– as I am–by crazy people, the good news is: YOU CAN STILL DO THIS.
I’ve already told you how I feel about hard stuff–I don’t participate.
So if I can do it–baby, you can do it.
You will need 6 squares of paper–any size…but the same size. You will also need a pair of scissors, some transparent tape and a stapler. THAT’S IT!!
I used a stick to hold this one up so I could take a picture of it. You don’t need a stick. Forget the stick.

I feel a little behind on all the Christmas decorations. Usually we have snowflakes up all over the ceiling… but I’m pretty sure those are in a box in the garage somewhere. 🙁 Sooo… perhaps I’ll have to make some of THESE snowflakes for all over the house. Heaven knows I have NOT met my quota of push pins in the walls these fine season. 🙂 Heh heh heh.
Crazy… what’dya mean CRAZY?!? 😛
Oooo! Can’t wait to decorate the dorm!
Careful–these are addicting! You may find yourself making snowflakes out of every piece of paper you get your hands on. I sure did!
You heard me!
I made a few of them for the office and they look great! We have been thinking of trying to make them and using a spray glitter to spruce them up a little.
There is a clear glitter spray at JoAnn Fabrics. I didn’t buy it–but I did see it there. I bet it would work.
The link for these instructions aren’t there anymore. 🙁
Thanks for letting me know. It should be fixed now. :}
Oh yay! Thank you! I look forward to trying these. 🙂
