You will need
- 6 sheets A4 white or coloured paper
- sticky tape
Fold each piece of paper from the top left corner to the edge of the other side, in a triangle shape. Now fold the right corner down so your paper resembles a house. Cut off the excess, so you are left with just the triangle. Repeat with the remaining sheets to make six triangles.
Cut three horizontal lines right to left into a triangle, leaving a 2cm gap on the lefthand side. You can lightly draw the lines on using a pencil and ruler, to make sure they are straight. Repeat with the other triangles. Open out each sheet of paper and lay it flat, with a point at the top like a diamond.
Roll up the smallest tabs (the ones in the middle) and, overlapping the ends slightly, tape them together. Turn the paper over and repeat this action with the next set of tabs on the other side. Repeat, turning over each time, until all the ends are taped together. Repeat on the remaining sheets of paper.
Staple one arm of the snowflake to another in the middle and at the bottom until all six pieces are attached to create a full snowflake.
Punch or cut a hole into one of the points and thread through some string to hang up your new decoration.
