So I thought I'd share a quick tutorial. There are probably hundreds of these tutorials online, but, oh well, here's one more.
Start with a piece of white paper and scissors.
Now comes the trickiest part. You're going to fold the right corner up toward and past the center. Then do the same thing with the left corner. You want all of the side to meet up and a perfect point, so this takes a bit of trial and error.
|All edges line up.|
|Edges don't meet. Needs fixing.|
|Bad point. Needs fixing.|
Now that you're done folding, you can start cutting. It's important to notice the difference in the two sides before you cut.
The side shown above, that is closed, while make the points of the snowflake.
The other side, pictured above, the open side, will create the space between the points. I usually start by cutting into the open side.
|So you can see here, the left side will be the point.|
Cutting into both sides as pictured above, will create a snowflake like the one below.
Cutting into to only the open side, like the picture above, will create a snowflake like the one below.
I love the way the house looks when the sun shines through the windows. Snowflake shadows everywhere!
