What you will need:

- small, sharp scissors
- fishing line

3D Paper Snowflake
What You Will Need:
- 6 pieces of white paper
Fold each of the 6 pieces of paper in half, diagonally. If the paper you are using does not make a perfect triangle, cut off the rectangular edge that sticks out and make it align perfectly. You should end up with a square folded into a triangle. Fold the triangle in half, noting where the folded “bottom” of the triangle is. Cut 3 lines in the triangle.
Position the scissors along the bottom fold, and parallel to one of the edges going up to the top (your cuts should be somewhat diagonal). Cut almost all the way up to one of the side edges, but not quite. Keep about the same distance between each cut.
Unfold the triangle again. Turn it so that one of the points of the square faces you. It should look like the picture.Keeping your paper diamond side-up, roll the first two innermost paper lines together to form a tube. Tape these two pieces together. You should see triangle shapes on each side of the roll.
Turn the diamond over to the other side. Take the next two paper lines and pull them together on the opposite side of the tube and tape together as before. This will be a more rounded shape and wider than the first tube.
Keep turning the paper and joining the paper lines together on opposite side in the same fashion until all paper lines have been joined.
Repeat Steps 3 – 7 with the remaining 5 pieces of paper.
Join 3 of the completed rolled pieces together at one end and staple together using the other hand. Do the other 3 pieces the same way. Now you will have 2 pieces consisting of 3 strands or “arms” each.
Staple the two new pieces together in the middle.
Staple where each of the 6 arms meet. This ensures that the snowflake shape is pulled into place. See illustration at top for the finished snowflake.
Glitter Snowflake Ornaments
What You Will Need:
- snowflake punch
- card stock
- glass glitter
- paint brush
You need a punch out snowflakes. Make a glue two of the snowflakes together to make it a bit firmer. Punch a hole at the top for hook. Then brush on the glue and sprinkle with glass glitter. You will found it to be easier to glue and glitter sections of the snowflake at a time verses the whole thing. let the front dry and then make the back. Now they are ready for a Christmas tree!
