Homemade Snowflakes

So this year we wanted to add more homemade decorations to our home.
I thought it would be fun for all the kids to make different kinds of snow flakes.
we did the traditional ones, and even tried the 3d ones.
i thought the came out cute and made our home
even more warmer then before.
Nothing like a child's art to make you smile.
 
 
Steps to make a 3d snowflake
 
steps 1-3
 steps 4-7 (7 is repeating the steps)
 steps 8-10
 
what you will need: scissors, tape and a stapler.
 
step 1 - Get a piece of paper cut to an even square. Mine is 8 1/2 x 8 1/2.
step 2 - Fold the paper in half diagonally, point to point.
step 3 - Cut three triangles into the paper not letting tips touch.
step 4 - Open paper, take tips of first piece and tape together.
step 5 - Fold next piece opposite direction.
step 6  - Do same for remaining pieces, doing each one on the opposite side of the last.
step 7 - Repeat for each piece of paper.
step 8 - Bunch three and connect together with a staple.
step 9 - Repeat for second set of three and connect both together.
step 10 - Staple each side to the one next to it with a staple.
Last picture is what it looks like.
