I love finding new ways to make snowflakes and snowflake art! Last year we made snowflakes from cupcake liners which was fun! This year we made them from coloured tissue paper but then transferred the dye from the tissue paper onto card! Here’s what you need:
- Coloured tissue paper (dark colours work best, we found)
- White card
- Paintbrush and water
Depending on the age of the child(ren) doing this activity, you may prefer to prepare the folded tissue paper in advance. And make sure you prepare lots as there might be quite a bit of trial and error if the kids are new to cutting snowflakes!
There are many ways to fold paper ready for snowflake cutting, depending on how many points you want! We used a technique very similar to this one: folded a square piece of paper in half, folded the two edges into the middle to form thirds, then cut along the edge opposite the point to form a horizontal line. You can then fold it in half again if you like!
We had some friends round for a party so my mother and I prepped loads of folded paper – but in the end only my son did the craft!
As we had so many folded snowflakes left over – my mother (an expert snowflake-cutter) tried the activity too. Here are the results!
