Our paper snowflakes activity is inspired by Geoffrey Preston’s exhibition A Symphony of Curves.
- You will need eight sheets of tissue paper.
- Fold the tissue over and under (like a fan/concertina).
- When the paper is folded, cut the ends into a petal shape or point.
- Tie a thread around the middle tightly.
- Tie a thread around the middle tightly. Start to pull out the layers of the pompom. First four layers on top on either side.
- Then turn over and pull out the other four layers on the bottom on either side. Fluff your pompom for the perfect shape.
- You will need a square piece of white paper.
- Fold the paper in half to make a triangle. Then fold over again to make a smaller triangle.
- Fold from point A. – see below. Then fold point C. over – see below.
- Cut the bottom of the triangle – see below.
- Draw out shapes on the triangle then cut them out.
- Unfold the triangle to reveal a paper snowflake!
- You need a white A4 sheet of paper.
- Fold the paper under and over like a fan / concertina.
- When the paper is folded, tie a thread around the middle tightly.
- Draw out shapes / pattern onto each end of the folded paper.
- Cut out the shapes.
- Unfold the paper to reveal a snowflake. Glue each end together to hold the paper snowflakes in place.
