Paper Snowflakes

Now this is a pretty traditional craft that I remember doing many times as a kid. You start with a square piece of paper fold it in half twice to get a smaller square and then fold that into a triangle. Usually you then round the wide end of the triangle. Then you cut small shapes out to. When it is unfolded you have a beautiful snowflake. Now you can get more creative and use more complex shapes to cut out such as hearts, stars, and moons. Click on the thumbnails below to get a better idea of the different ways to make creative snowflakes. Also, please feel free to comment and tell about your unique cut out ways to make paper snowflakes more fancy.
