How to make a big snowflake?

A large paper snowflake is very often used as an independent decoration of a home, office, assembly hall in schools and kindergartens. Its advantage is precisely in volume, well, and, of course, in the openwork. The article How to make snowflakes from paper will tell you about making different paper snowflakes. But how to make a large and stylish snowflake, read on.

A similar version of the snowflake consists of six identical parts, connected with a stapler. The main thing is to make every detail, and then connect the finished together.

For work you will need:

  • color cardboard two-sided,
  • scissors,
  • simple pencil
  • ruler,
  • stapler
  • office adhesive or double sided tape.

Get started

  1. Take a sheet of colored double-sided A4 paperboard or square-sized scrapbooking paper. Fold the rectangular sheet so as to form a triangle. When you fold a rectangular sheet, cut off the extra strip - it will not be useful to us.Square sheet simply fold in half diagonally.
  2. Place the resulting triangle on the table so that it lies as an equilateral triangle, the larger side down. Now take a ruler and a simple pencil and mark 3 lines on both sides of the triangle so that they are parallel to these sides, are at the same distance (about 1.5-2 cm) and do not converge together at the top of the triangle, leaving 1- 2 cm of pure canvas.snowflake
  3. Next, you need to make a slot at the triangle along the marked lines. Moving from the base of the triangle to its top, you will have six cuts. How to cut snowflakes out of paper correctly is described in How to cut snowflakes.
  4. Now unfold the sheet, as if opening it. It turned out openwork square. In the middle of it formed a small square with two free corners. They need to be interconnected with glue or double-sided tape.
  5. The next stage is to connect two opposite corners of the cut strips, only on the other side of the part, then repeat in a similar way two more times, each time turning the shape over to the other side.It turned out the detail, which need to be similar only 6 pieces.
  6. When you have all six details of your future volumetric snowflake ready, you need to properly and firmly connect them together. To do this, lay out all the parts in front of you vertically and connect the sides and at the same time one edge of the part with a stapler.

Here so the big snowflake from a paper turns out.
