The Pin Junkie: 3D Paper Snowflakes

3D Paper Snowflakes


These snowflakes look really complicated to make, don't they?  They're not! I made them with my second grade class - I promise it's not hard.

And they're all over Pinterest right now.

There are several blogs that have tutorials on how to make these.  The one that I found most helpful was at Ellinee Journal and this blog even has printables that you can use to make small, medium, and large snowflakes.  If you're doing this project with young children, it's a good idea to use the printable so they know where to cut.  Once you've made a few and get really good at it, you won't even need to use the printables!

  8. I have seen these the last two years and loved them. I thought they looked difficult. I leave out Winter themed decor for January. Would love to make a few of these. Hopping over to see printable. Also pinned it. Thanks so much for sharing it with Share Your Cup.

  9. Just wanted to mention that if you take off word verification you will get alot more comments. Some people just give up and don't try when they see that. It can be frustrating. Sometimes it works the first try. Other times it takes three.

  19. Those are really cool. My daughter made them in kindergarten at school before she was homeschool. At home she made a ton more out of all different colors. They are a great cutting activity for little ones.
