Snowflakes Christmas Card DIY

Happy Holidays!

Time is going by so fast! I just finished two whole quarters of fashion school, finals are finally over, and I officially started winter break this week haha. I finally had some time to quickly wrap gifts and make Christmas cards.

It’s always been a habit of mine to make Christmas cards to accompany the gifts I give out. This time I made snowflakes for my cards.

Materials I used:

  • Tissue paper
  • 8 x 11 inch cardstock paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue Stick
  • Markers

I started by cutting the paper in half and folding it in half to be the card. Then I cut the tissue paper into small rectangles (no specific size, and doesn’t have to be perfect).

Then I folded the tissue paper in half and from there in half again in both directions to leave a cross mark.

Right at the point of the fold, I folded it until the corner touched the cross.

I then fold that in half

Then I folded that along the side of the triangle that was made.

Then, flip it over and with what’s left of the paper, I folded it down and it should look like a triangle as shown.

Right at the point of the triangle that was formed previously, I would just cut it off in different zig zag shapes. On the other edges, I like to cut out different triangles. You really could cut it any way you like and it’ll still look kind of like a snowflake.

Unfold it and it should look like this. Repeat, be creative, and there would be a lot of paper snowflakes.

I simply glued the ones I liked onto the front of the card, decorated with a silver marker and it’s completed.

I’m going to make a couple more of these, wrap some more gifts, and get ready for Christmas. Since I still have to work this week, I’m super excited for that one day off.

I’m going to sleep in! What are your plans for the holidays?
