Want to quickly add some holiday cheer to a room? These giant paper snowflakes are super easy to make and will look great well into the new year. (hand beside mouth) I love decorations I can leave up well after the holidays are over!
I’m going to show you how to make two different giant paper snowflakes — the twisty snowflake and the fan snowflake!
For the twisty snowflake, you need six sheets of eight and a half by eleven inch sixty five pound cardstock. Of course, it doesn’t have to be white … I also made some out of a pretty blue cardstock!
For the fan snowflake, you need eight white paper lunch bags — these are five by three by 9 inches in size.
You’ll also want a bit of twine or string to hang your snowflakes, and maybe a hole punch to make a hole for your string. And a strand of LED fairy lights adds a fun touch as well!
To put these snowflakes together, I recommend a hot glue gun and glue sticks. You will also want some finger caps to protect your fingers from the hot glue. For that reason, you may prefer to use tacky glue. And it’s also fine to use tape, especially to keep the twisty snowflakes together.
Now the twisty snowflake can be cut with scissors, with a craft knife, or with a Cricut cutting machine — if you use a Cricut, I recommend you use the green standardgrip mat and the fine point blade.
The fan snowflake can only be cut by hand with scissors or a craft knife. The fan snowflake is a fun project to do with a group!
So let me show you where to get the patterns for these two snowflakes, then I’ll show you how to cut and assemble them step by step!
