Ah, the classic Christmas craft! Do you ever remember making and decorating your classrooms in paper snowflakes? Normally, we’d grab a piece of paper, fold it a few times and cut out a few shapes, which would reveal your very own snowflake design. However, times have changed and so have these classic crafts. There are many fun alternatives, but you can never beat the originals. You can make them your own using decorative paper, glitter glue and anything else you could think of.
One other thing you can do to add an extra flair to your DIY decorations is to use a paper cutter such as the rotatrim to cut off straight edges from the sheet of paper, turning your rectangle paper into a diamond shape. Then go ahead with the folding and cutting as normal and when you unfold you’ll have a lovely diamond-shaped snowflake cut out.
