Paper Snowflake Designs
Different paper stars!
@Christina Childress Westover Here's a use for all those coffee filters!!! Using a coffee filter to make a snowflake... what a great idea! Already in a circle, gives the 3D effect when unfolded, and cheaper than using up all my paper budget! Will have kids make these and then write about a snow day. Love this idea for making snowflakes and not sure why I didn't think of it sooner.

The most simple paper snowflakes are based on 4- or 8-pointed stars (fold a square in half diagonally and keep halving it until it's nearly too thick to cut, then snip out small shapes ). The second and third flakes in this garland are based on a 5-pointed star. Download the 5-point folding directions right here. I think they're easier to cut since there are fewer paper layers.
