Matthias and I were cutting snowflakes on Saturday and I accidentally made one with hearts–then of course I was totally excited and proceeded to make a bunch more with hearts! It’s not hard to do–here’s a quick tutorial.

I just used computer paper we already had–it’s easy to fold and cut!

You need a square shape, so just fold up on corner until it meets the edge and crease.

Fold the square in half.

Fold in half again.

And fold in half one more time.

You can see, above the half heart shape is drawn on the folded edges, the triangle shape is on the outer part of the snowflake.

Cut away on the pencil lines {this can be especially helpful for kiddos}

Unfold and you have a gorgeous snowflake with hearts! How sweet is that?!

We’re gearing up for Thanksgiving but my heart is ready for Christmas!

Have you ever made paper snowflakes to decorate for Christmas?
