Snowflake Tutorial And Flower Frenzy

Hello friends!  I’m back to share the snowflake tutorial.  Here’s the  snowflakes I made.  These are SO EASY and have loads of dimension.  You can make them any size you’d like.  For my tutorial, I’ve used 6”x6” squares.
Start by cutting four squares.

Fold the first square in half to make a triangle.

Fold again to make a smaller triangle.

Hold the triangle piece with the two folds in your left hand.

Make 2 equal cuts just up to the fold, being careful not to cut through the fold.

Unfold.

Join the ends of the center piece and glue or tape.

Turn the square over and adhere the second piece.  Two of the pieces face the front, one faces the back.

Turn over and adhere the last two pieces.

Repeat this for the other four squares.

Assemble the snowflake by taping 2 ends together.  Turn and attach the other two ends.

And it’s been a flower frenzy here at my house.  I have been making flowers like crazy..LOL!  Here’s some I have finished.
