Paper Snowflakes

Start with a strip
for a snowflake 6 inches in diameter, cut a strip of white tissue paper 18 inches long and 6 inches wide.

Fold in half, then half again, and again, and so on until your strip is folded in to a width of 1/2 inch

Crease the folds carefully, open up the strip, and then, using the creases as a guide, refold in accordion pleats.

When the strip is again folded up to a width of 1/2 inch staple in the middle, across the width
Snip out tiny triangles pieces on each side of the folded strip.

Cut points on the ends.
Each snowflake you make should be snipped a little differently because, as you know, snowflakes are never alike.

Open up to form a circle and fasten the sides together with cellophane tape.
Suspend by a thread slipped through one of the trangular cutouts.
