Making paper snowflakes is a childhood tradition that has been going on forever. Fill your house with a blizzard of these airy flakes to celebrate winter, even there's no snow outside your window.

  3. Fold in half again.
  4. Let your reader cut different shapes into the filter, or have them draw a design and then cut along lines.
