I love the holidays, and decorating the house really puts me in the Christmas spirit.

A Festive and Simple Holiday Craft

Even if you live in a sunny place that won’t have snow this Christmas season, making snowflakes is still a fun and festive activity to do with kids or for yourself. After all, Santa does live in the snowy North Pole!

Besides their festivity, making paper snowflakes is a simple and relatively clean craft that both children and adults are sure to enjoy. In the following original designs, I have included printable templates and mock-ups of what the template will look like once you cut and unfold your masterpiece! The black sections are the negative space that is to be cut away.

I hope that these snowflake patterns bring you festivity and joy this holiday season. Merry Christmas and happy holidays!

The Templates

How to Print and Resize the Templates on a Mac

  1. First, save the image as a JPEG or PDF file by right-clicking (or clicking with two fingers) on the image and selecting Save Image As.
  2. Open the file using Preview, Mac’s default image-viewing program.
  3. Select File, then select Print from the drop-down menu or ⌘P. If you don't see the option to change the scale of your image, click on Show Details.
  4. Now you should be able to change the orientation and scale of the image.
  5. Press Print once you are satisfied with the new dimensions.

How to Fold and Cut Out Your Snowflakes

  1. Print your design only on one side of the paper. Use the instructions above to resize if necessary, but make sure you do not throw off the proportions when resizing.
  2. Cut away excess paper so that you only have your square.
  3. Use the video below to fold the paper into the proper shape. Make sure that your template remains on the outside of the paper so that you can still see it when cutting.
  4. Cut away the black sections and carefully remove them.
  5. Carefully unfold your snowflake!
