How to Make 6-Pointed Paper Snowflakes

How to Make 6-Pointed Paper Snowflakes
This step by step guide will teach you how to make SIX pointed paper snowflakes. Most people make (and most how-tos teach) snowflakes with four or eight points. Real snowflakes in nature form with six points (or occasionally three if they formed weird) so I choose to make my own with six points. Be sure that you follow each step carefully. Each step is one fold, but some steps have two pictures shown to help explain things, so please read the description underneath. Instructables.com doesn't always show all of the steps on one page, so hit "next" to go on to the next step. All you will need for this is paper and scissors. If you want to view a gallery of my snowflakes, see me on Flickr: Paper Snowflake Gallery. Remember to rate this Instructable!
