# Volumetric snowflakes with their own hands is easy and simple, follow our advice

The New Year is one of those holidays thatwait with impatience, which is not only kids, but adults also love. And many wonder how to decorate the house for these great holidays. For example, there is a tradition to decorate a Christmas tree, a room and windows with cut-out garlands and snowflakes. Many remember how in the kindergarten or at home they learned to cut out from paper, paper napkins, the first New Year's crafts with their own hands. It was very exciting, fun and interesting. I suggest you to start again to create snowflakes to diversify the decor of your house and give joy to yourself and your loved ones. So, in this article I want to show you how a 3D snowflake is created from origami paper. For work we need to prepare: six equal in size squares of white paper. Any paper is suitable for snowflakes, but the thinner it will be, the more likely it will lose its shape quickly. The side of each square can be from 10 to 25 cm. From tools: scissors, a simple pencil, a stapler, a ruler. We bend each of the six squares of paper in half, diagonally. On each one we make a marking out of three parallel lines, as shown in the figure (the lengths along the width should be the same). Of course, do not draw lines in red (I drew them in the photo, so you can see better), you also use a simple pencil. We cut the planned lines with scissors, beginning from the edge and slightly short of the middle (leaving a couple of millimeters). Expand the square folded diagonally, and put the face up in front of him, as shown in the photo below. Fold the first row of strips with a tube, attach it with a stapler. You should see triangular shapes on each side of the tube. Now turn the snowflake to the other side. The next two strips nearest to the center are fastened with a stapler. Further we turn the snowflake and fasten the strips, which remained a stapler. That's what should happen. Do the same with the remaining five squares of paper. We connect together three parts of a snowflake in the middle with a stapler. Do the same with the remaining three. Now we connect these two large parts with each other. We connect also in those places where each of the six parts of the snowflake is in contact with each other, in order for the snowflake to keep its shape. That's what it turns out. Now we decorate your craft on your own taste (for example, you can glue sequins, sequins). Snowflake can be hung on the window, on the tree, on the wall ...
