4 am snowflake tutorial

Pregnancy insomnia has kicked in. Or pregnancy non-sleep I guess because I actually slept until 4am. So what better time to post a snowflake tutorial I've been meaning to post!!?

1. Square off your paper. It worked well for me to fold a triangle and then cut around it. Perfect square.


2. Fold a second triangle, your paper should now have 4 creases.



3. make 4 cuts, perpendicular to the back fold.



Your first piece of cut paper should look like so:



4. I did not get a picture of the glueing... my fingers were a bit... glued. However, you take the very center cuts and fold them onto each other, matching the points then putting a dab of glue, a small slice of tape OR a glue dot. Make sure you rotate each row in the direction you glue it.


repeat this first 4 steps six times.


Now glue the center and one corner together.



This might be a really horrible tutorial and if you agree then just look here for a better one. These are SO simple to make, though a tad time consuming. Ok, so just go there anyway. She has a cute blog.


Depending on your size of paper, that is how large the snowflake will be.


Enjoy!! :)
