Fancy This: Paper Snowflakes

Bula!(Hi!) I have just returned to Japan from a midsummer island. I spent the year-end and New Year holidays in Fiji with my Family! I enjoyed sunny blue sky, crystal clear sea and white sand beach, but I love snow as much as them. Unfortunately, it doesn’t snow in our town so we visit Hokkaido, has many ski resorts in northern part of Japan, to enjoy skiing and snowboarding every year. Today, I am going to share a winter layout and show how to make snowflakes with papers.


Fancy Pants Supplies:
Tradition: Falling Snow pattern paper
Tradition: Strips pattern paper
Tradition: Brrr pattern paper
Hot Chocolate: Marshmallow Cocoa pattern paper
Hot Chocolate: Cards pattern paper
Lilac House: Lavender Leaves pattern paper
Tradition: Element Stickers
Tradition: Tags & Titles
Tradition: Buttons
Tradition: Brads
Hot Chocolate: Alpha Stickers
Lilac House: Element Stickers
Lilac House: Brads
Lilac House: Ribbon/trim
Happy Together: Ribbon/trim
Happy Together: Alpha Stickers
Glitter cuts

Other Supplies:
Snow tex

I often use snowtex and gesso on a winter layout. They give it a touch of snowy and frozen finish on it.

I always make a big size of snowflake with my scissors. This is a kind of Origami technique. It’s easy! This is how to make it.

1. First cut a 3.5” x 3.5” square of paper.

2. Fold it in half.

3. Fold up bottom corners like this.

4. Draw pencil guideline like this.

5. Cut it out with scissors

You can paint, apply snowtex or glitter glue on it, put brads, buttons ... you can add anything you like! I hope you enjoyed this idea. Please try it on your project!
