DIY 6-Sided Snowflakes

Through the years, my family and I have decorated in the winter by making snowflakes. It all started when I was a little girl. My folks had Childcraft books and one of them had instructions for making six-sided snowflakes. I made a lot of those as a kid. But then life got busy and I forgot how to make them. snowflake collage www.joyfulwonder.com

Enter a really smart husband! Shortly after we got married, we had no money to decorate for Christmas. I wanted to make snowflakes, but could not remember the special fold. Matt figured it out and we’ve been making them ever since. Every year, our sons and I would make snowflakes and hang them all over the house, especially in our big living room window. snowflakes in the window www.joyfulwonder.com

When facebook came into being, I posted photos of the snowflakes and got many questions about how to make them.Six sided snowflake www.joyfulwonder.com

So, Matt and I decided to make a video showing the secret fold. I hope you enjoy it! And I’d love to see your snowflakes!
