why we love snowflake (and you should, too!)

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?


  1. Liked and commented on Instagram. What a great Giveaway. Thank you so much, Lisa and Happy Holidays to you and yours!

  2. I’m having a craft day with my grandchildren. This will certainly be something that we will make. Besides, who doesn’t love hearts! :)The last photo of Mathias, peeking through the snowflake is adorable. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Ha! I just spent an hour (at work) perfecting the heart snowflake! I haven’t done that since kindergarten! How fun! Thanks! Better get back to work….:)
