Instructions

  1. Fold the doily in half , in half again , and then in half again  until it resembles the shape of a slice of pizza.
  2. Now it’s time for the fun part: designing your snowflake! For beginners, copy the design from the diagram below and sketch it onto your folded doily. Cut out the shapes that you sketched. Carefully unfold the doily. And… it has magically become a beautiful snowflake craft!
  3. As you get the hang of how to make a snowflake, try to get creative. Come up with your own unique designs to cut out. Here are some suggestions:
  • For a more intricate pattern (for older children), try folding the doily a fourth time before cutting
  • You can scallop or zigzag the round edge, for added flare.
  • Try the following shapes: half square, half triangle, half circle, half hexagon, and half heart
