3-D Snowflakes

Saturday, December 6, 2008

I found this idea posted on the Homeschoolshare message board. These look difficult, but once you do one, they are actually quite easy! We made five of them this morning using origami paper that was 4 1/2 inches square. The paper was white on one side and colored on the other side (almost in a starburst pattern). See here for the instructions. Some tips to make this project easier:

1. Use small pieces of tape.
2. We only had a big stapler, but a smaller one would have been easier.
3. Put the tape on one side then roll to connect to the other side.

I love these. I was the one who posted them on the forum - but I like them better done on origami paper. It makes the colors look very neat!

Those turned out GREAT! I ended up making one for the kids, they lost interest way too quickly. :)

Hey there, I did see these on the boards and your blog...but I thought it looked a little complicated. Do you think my girls would be old enough to be able to make these??
