❄ Snowflakes ❄

Hey everyone!

It’s January and the start of a new semester, is anyone excited? >____< Getting back into a productive work ethic is difficult especially with this dreary weather so far. When I typically think of a January in winter, I think of snow; therefore, I compiled a list of snowflake origami for this post! Here’s a picture of snow in Japan to start us off:

The first project is something I’ve been making since I was a kid. They’re so easy to learn, but this is more of a kirigami project. There are plenty of designs to be made if you look around. Usually, I just cut out random shapes and patterns, though. It always turns out look pretty and unique. It’s almost impossible to mess up on this project. Instructions are given if you follow the link from the photo caption.

The second project is just as easy. This one is just a little more arts and crafts. It’s a really simple modular/kirigami piece that just takes some measuring and cutting. Putting the six pieces together forms a really fantastic, grand structure that would be great as a hanging decoration. The instructions from the following site are very easy to follow to create this beautiful snowflake.

Finally, this last project is a big jump in level. It’s not easy like the two projects from before, but it’s not too hard either! The first step would be to make a hexagon. You can make one out of a square piece of origami paper from these instructions. Afterwards, you fold it into a snowflake from the design of Dennis Walker. As you can see, using translucent paper gives a really ethereal effect. In the link, there is a simple video to follow how to fold this amazing piece.

Hope you all enjoyed this snowflake compilation and that you make one of them for decoration. They’re super pretty when compile together and maybe they’ll brighten the mood for winter. Thanks for reading and good luck to everyone~^-^

Have a great day,

Yada
