Sample Snowflake Patterns

MAKE YOUR OWN: This page contains links to three sample patterns & instructions that you can print and use to make your own snowflakes. One pattern has eight points and is the easiest to fold. Real snowflakes have six points, as do some of the examples on this website. It is harder to fold the paper to make a six pointed shape since the folds are at 60 degree angles. It shouldn't be too hard with the patterns given below since you won't have to measure the angles. Technically, if it doesn't have six points or sides then it should be called a "star" and not a snowflake but I prefer to call them all snowflakes. Click on any of the Snowflake links below, then print out the pattern page . After printing, close the PATTERN page to return to this page.
NOTE: The patterns are in PDF format so you need Adobe Acrobat reader or another PDF viewer to view and print the patterns (go here for FREE Adobe Reader download).

Snowflake No. 11 Thumbnail Image
Snowflake No. 11
This pattern has eight points so it should really be called a "star". The paper is folded three times which means it will have two different sets of four identical points. If you have difficulty folding or cutting out the snowflakes then try printing on thinner paper such as letter writing pad paper.

Snowflake No. 27
This pattern also has six points but the paper is folded four times to create six identical points. It is harder to make since there are twice as many layers of paper to cut through, so it is best to use thin paper.
