Here are the steps to creating your own paper snowflakes, which are
great to use to decorate a dessert table or just add some wintery fun to
Below are the basic folding steps to create any snowflake.
Now that you have your basic shape, it's time to draw your design. For the first snowflake, I chose a
cupcake pattern. Remember, anything you draw on the folded edge will be
mirrored. So if you draw half a cupcake, you’ll get a whole cupcake when
you unfold your snowflake.
Cut out your shapes. A sharp scissor and lightweight paper work great. You could also use a craft knife to get more detailed.
Notice the cupcakes?
Above I show you how to create a heart and a tree within your snowflake.
Let it snow! Start with some simple designs and see where the scissors take you.
Here's a custom-made, needle felted wedding cake topper I made for a lovely couple getting married in March. I can't wait to see some pictures of it on top of their cake! Instead of the usual top hat and bow tie for the groom, the bride requested something different....a black cap with BK for Brooklyn.
If you or anyone you know needs a custom wedding cake topper, just head over to my Etsy page and take a look. All custom made - to the animals of your choice, flowers, color of base and more!
