Free Paper Snowflake Patterns and Images

This page links to scanned images of paper snowflakes that have been cut out of ordinary writing and computer paper with small scissors and all provides some sample patterns that you can print and cut out to create your own snowflakes. The snowflakes have been used to decorate our Christmas tree, windows, furniture, and doorways during the Christmas season for the last 25 years or so. Each Christmas we make a few more to add to our collection. They provide a wintry personal touch to Christmas decorations and if handled with care the snowflakes can be used over and over for many years. I hope you enjoy looking at the images and I hope that they inspire you to create your own paper snowflakes.
NOTE: This site is all about cut paper Christmas decorations. Real snowflakes have SIX points. On this site you will find paper cutouts with 3, 4, 6, 8 and more points. Technically only those with SIX points should be called snowflakes and the rest referred to as "stars". If you are looking for information on real snowflakes there are a number of interesting sites listed at the end of my "LINKS TO OTHER SNOWFLAKE SITES" page.
MAKE YOUR OWN: I have included several patterns and instructions that you can print and use to make your own snowflakes.
I have had requests for simpler patterns that younger children can make, so I have included some fairly simple patterns. Please try them and let me know how easy they are to make.
Here are some snowflake designs and sample pattern with a "Heart" theme suitable for weddings and Valentine's Day:
