From Scraps to Snowflakes

Happy Ganesh Chaturthi everyone!
I was in a dilemma on how to decorate the house yesterday. But I realise that you don’t get ideas when you want to. But I got one anyway. Co-incidentally. While fiddling with scraps of paper I found out how to make these decorations good for any occasion.
P.S: A great idea for putting on a Teacher’s Day card, too.

If you want to make the Snowflakes With A Twist, here is just how.

  • GRAB SOME SCRAPS- THEY WON’T BE SCRAPS FOR LONG!
    You will want some four strips of paper, all of the same length and width, and a pair of scissors.

    And, of course, some glue will be necessary too. That’s all you’ll need!
  • FOLDING AND CUTTING- GETTING THE STRUCTURE OF YOUR SNOWFLAKE
    After you have all your materials, place the four strips on on top of the other. Then fold them all into half. You’ll have something like this:
    SnowFlake2
    It is time to get snipping! Cut your paper along the ends to make a snowflake-y design. And then you can open up your paper. You won’t have cut it just like I have, but you’ll get something like:
    SnowFlake3
  • GLUE THEM UP- YOUR SNOWFLAKE IS ALL SET!
    You’ll have a crease in the middle of your strips. So glue all your strips to make something like:
    SnowFlake4
    Ta-daa! An easy craft you can make on lazy days.
    Experiment with different colours, different designs and different sizes. Try stringing them up, or sticking them on your wall! The best part about these snowflakes is that you can be creative even after the creative part :)That is it for now.
    Hope you had fun! (Typical dialogue)
