Cutting paper snowflakes is probably one of my very favorite winter crafts. Even though most people only find it acceptable to hang snowflakes before Christmas, I feel as though they make great "winter" decor. I've been doing it for years and I wont lie...I totally pride myself on them once finished. You'll need loads of blank 8.5x11" paper and a pair of nice, sharp scissors.
Step 1: Place the paper in front of you, portrait-style.
Step 2: Fold in half. Be sure to crease your edges really tightly. I pinch the paper between my fingernails, or rub the handle of my scissors over it. The flatter your folds lay, the easier it is to cut later.
Step 6: Fold the fox head/pointy heart in half leaving the flap on the top.
Now you can practice, practice, practice and be ready for next winter!
