View Full Version : 3d snowflake?

24-11-2010, 05:31 PM
I've search the forum and can't seem to find the instructions of how to make the 3D snowflake, the children loved doing them last year and for the life of me I can't remember how to do it.

Does anyone have the instructions please.

Found it :thumbsup:

Those that have made these before - do you just use A4 paper and cut it down to make it square, or do you get square paper - and if so where from - please!!!!!!!!! :D

Like the idea of the sparkly paper, is it easy to get hold of? - have seen card, but would have thought that wouldn't work very well - too difficult to curl round!!

We have started to decorate our playroom today... seeing its snowing out and its very nearly December ;)

I have just made my first ever 3d snowflake and its bril, I love it. I used A4 paper and cut it into squares but will look for some fancy paper when I go shopping :clapping:

Made one today - looks really good even if I do say so myself :blush: Not sure any of my mindees will be able to manage it thoas it is quite fiddly, so will have to make more myself :clapping:

27-11-2010, 09:06 AM
oooo they look fab! NOt sure if my lo would spend more than 2 minutes making them though lol! dd and me may have to do it at weekend:idea:

I'm going to give these a go with my 6yr old mindee. Really hoping he doesn't say it going to be too hard, like a lot of things I plan for him to do Hx

Your a star. Made these last year and for the life of me couldnt find them again. They are really easy to make once you have tried it and look great..guess what im doing tonight!

My little ones a too young but I think I will make a few to hang from the ceiling. :thumbsup:

01-12-2011, 06:12 PM
Thank you so much for posting these

I made one myself as a trial run before the school run, then had 2 5 yr olds making one - which they did really easily with minimal assistance. Then one 5 yr old made another and then his sister made one too.

So I have 2 lovely big ones hanging from my ceiling and 2 went home with the kids - they are awesome and super effective. I used paper that was coloured on one side and white on the other - it makes them look AMAZING!!! one it hot pink and white, the other bright green and white!!

They are brilliant, will be making some more tomorrow, thank you for the link cause I was going to search for it and you saved me a job :thumbsup:

01-12-2011, 08:57 PM

I made these with my daughter yesterday as my mindees are all too little.
She loved them.

I dont have a stapler :O was thnking maybe card and hole punch one of tops and tie with ribbon into a circle then glue side edges.. anyone made one that thinks that would work?

Also think that less lines would do anything like three lines to cut.. think ill experiment!

Just had a go at this with my dd(6). We made a white one. I thought they were easier than expected but she still said she had enough after making 1 and is a craft-aholic usually! Oh well, looks nice hanging in the window. Thanks for sharing the link. :)
