Well, winter has already come. Christmas is getting closer and today I have for you a very unusual and openwork version of a volumetric snowflake. I love this method and look forward to teaching you How to Make a Paper Snowflake for Kids.
How to Make a Paper 3D Snowflake
How to Make a Paper Snowflake for Kids step by step
Total Time: 25 minutes
Step 1 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
So we take the squares and fold them all diagonally.
Step 2 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
Now we need to make marks so that the strips are even and identical full length of 10 centimeters I mark one centimeter.
Step 3 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
The same marks I make on another square can of course make the stripes by eye, but it will be neater.
Step 4 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
I will make two parts at the same time, so it is faster to put it on the back of the marked and not reaching the end of about half a centimeter make the cut.
Step 5 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
So that’s two pieces at once ready now I put the other three together and also cut through.
Step 6 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
Now open each part and start gluing. start from the bottom length of the strips about one centimeter glue first on one side.
Step 7 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
Then flip and glue the next pair on the other side so we alternate until the end should turn out here is a feather. Also glue first one side, then the other.
Step 8 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
And when everything is ready, it’s time to assemble the snowflake. Lay out the pieces so that they look in one direction. In the same way we will glue it. Dab the bottom with glue and assemble the snowflake one by one. Attention, look at the last fifth part, glue not to the right, but to the left of the very first.
Step 9 – How to Make a Paper Snowflake
Here is how then bend a corner and then the snowflake is flat and very beautiful. That is basically all. The white fluffy things are ready, they are very cool and decorate your holiday. Be sure to try to make them! Have a great mood.

How to Make a Snowflake in Quilling Technique
In this master class, you will learn how to make snowflakes from paper in the technique of quilling.
Ready decoration can complement a greeting card, Christmas tree, panel. In the work there is nothing complicated. For the craft used a special paper, which is sold in stores for creativity and needlework. In the extreme case, if there is no place to buy or no possibility, you can cut the strips yourself from colored sheets. Spend a little more time.
Materials for work:
- thin colored strips for quilling;
- a special thin stick with a split end for twisting rolls (such a tool is included in the kits);
- PVA glue (it is desirable to have a tube with a sharp spout for easy work).
To make a simple snowflake from paper in the quilling technique, prepare paper strips of the right colors. Usually they are 40 cm or more in length. One whole strip will make a denser roll. If small parts are needed, you can cut them. The suggested snowflake is made in yellow tones. Make a few different colors.
The middle of the craft can be made darker, using two strips of different colors. For example, take the green and dark purple. Using a wand with a split end, twist one strip first.
Holding the roll with your fingers and not unraveling it, glue a dark strip on top, also wind it up, fix the end with glue. The resulting two-color round of quilling will be the central part of the snowflake.
Next, place 6 drop rays around the circumference. They can also be made of two colors. Take 6 light yellow and 6 orange strips of quilling paper for the snowflake.
Twist the light strip on the stick first, then glue the orange one and continue twisting. The resulting round slightly unravel to get a looser tablet. Secure the end with glue. Then press down on one side with your thumb and forefinger to make a quilting style droplet.
Make 6 yellow and orange drops of about the same size. If you have a ruler with round holes, it will serve as a template for modeling equal sized rolls.
In addition, to decorate the snowflake in the technique of quilling, prepare 6 light parts in the form of a half-arc. Follow the same technique. Wrap the strip, glue the end and press on both sides with your fingers, squeezing the middle up from the bottom.
Make six identical parts.
Make the main rays of bright yellow. Roll up the rolls as loose as possible.
When all the parts are ready, start assembling. Apply 6 drops of glue to the side of the central two-color tablet and glue 6 drops at equal distances from each other.
In the voids, glue a large yellow rays of paper for quilling.
Connect the rays to each other by parts of the average size to get a kind of hexagon.
A beautiful bright snowflake made of quilling is ready!
