The snow flake to the right gives the basic design of a six-sided snowflake. You can be as creative as you dare in making snowflake models. Just be sure they have six major sides.
A paper snowflake can be cut from a round paper coffee filter. The procedure for folding and cutting the paper filter is given in the diagram below.
Folding the paper correctly will result in the snowflake having six sides.
Note: The shape of the cut-outs is up to your own imagination. Be Creative!
You can make many different snowflakes simply by changing the number and shape of the cut-out sections.
