To round out 2022 I’ve decided to make it my mission to remind you of simple and easy crafts we did as kids. In some cases, you’ll say “oh my goodness I forgot about that silly type of project!” In other cases, someone will look at you and go “you mean you never made a ______?!” Either way, let this season take you on a tour of simple crafts to bring your inner child out to play.
Paper, preferably white
Pencil – optional
Using a standard piece of letter sized paper, fold the bottom right corner of the paper and bring it up to the left edge. The bottom should line up with the edge. Use your finger to along the diagonal edge to make a fold. You should have a triangle with a long rectangle above it.
Cut the rectangle strip off at the edge of the paper to leave yourself just the folded triangle. (If you unfold the triangle it should make a perfect square!)
Now, take your folded triangle, and fold that triangle in half to make a smaller triangle.
By bringing the right point of your triangle to the left, fold the smaller triangle into thirds. Then bring the left point towards the right by one third. You should be left with a shape something like an arrowhead.
Cut off the pointed ends so you’re left with a small triangle.
Cut the snowflake pattern into the sides of this small triangle. You can cut triangles into the triangle, diamonds, circles, curves etc. If you cut the tip, you’ll have a snowflake that has a hole in the middle!
Unfold carefully, and use your fingers to flatten it out. Now you’ve got a snowflake! Make a blizzard’s worth!
