Craft snowflakes without folding and cutting: With this quick guide you can easily make beautiful winter decoration out of music paper. This is how to make snowflakes from paper.
Snowflakes as Christmas decoration are one of my favourite motifs! The white flakes stand out beautifully on the windows – it already starts to get dark in the afternoon and little snowflakes also decorate my Christmas tree.
In the run-up to Christmas this year, I tried out a new technique how to make snowflakes from paper. To do this, you use strips of paper of different lengths. A hot glue gun is an indispensable tool to make the snowflakes stick. You don’t really need much else to make the snowflakes – everything I used is on the material list.
I decided to use music paper because I think it goes well with the Christmas season. But an old book is just as suitable!
The whole snowflake consists of 2.5 cm wide paper strips. Draw the paper strips on one side and then cut out 6 sides at a time.
Now bend the longest strip into a loop and hold it, then the 2nd and 3rd right and left, the 4th and 5th until you have a palmette with seven loops. Make sure the strips are directly on top of each other at the bottom and pin them 2 cm above the edge with a paper clip.
Repeat with the other 5 arms of the snowflake.
Put the two strips for the middle piece on top of each other, roll them up and glue them together.
Now glue each layer of paper of the arms of the snowflake to each other with hot glue. The complete lower end of the arm should be glued well, as this will make the snowflake stable. Finally, glue the arm generously to the rolled up middle piece with hot glue and press it on until the hot glue has dried.
Repeat this with the remaining 5 arms of the snowflake.
Finally, punch a small hole in the centre of one palmette with a revolving punch, thread the satin ribbon through twice and knot it inside.
I used a traditional sheet music book of Christmas carols and my snowflakes are 20cm in diameter.
