Self-made snowflakes are rarely the same, the fact is that even a master, who calculates the distance on paper with millimeter accuracy, cannot cut snowflakes similar to the previous ones.
Therefore, there is nothing surprising in the fact that it is difficult to find the same among fake ones, as well as among real snowflakes. But the fact that the snowflakes are different has its own beauty, because they all turn out to be unique, unlike others.
To cut out snowflakes, you need paper. It can be absolutely any paper, as long as it is thin enough, that is, so that you can fold it 16 times. You will also need scissors. And, of course, your imagination will come in handy.
There is really no such thing as a snowflake done right or a snowflake done wrong. The main thing in this business is that you like the snowflake, and how you made it does not really matter.
Yes, there are various snowflakes with six and eight rays, but even if you take a certain pattern, you will not get what the author of this pattern received, because, I repeat, there are no unique snowflakes in the world, they are all different.
If, nevertheless, we talk about patterns, then it is worth starting with the simplest pattern. First you need to cut a square out of paper, its dimensions depend only on you, the main condition is that it be a square. So, you first fold a sheet of paper diagonally, then you need to turn it at a right angle upward, then you fold it in half again, then you repeat this procedure several times. After that, you cut out any shapes of your choice from the resulting triangle. Then you unfold and admire.
Try to repeat this procedure for yourself with another piece of paper and compare the result. They will be similar, it may even seem to you that absolutely, but still they will be different.
Using a variety of snowflakes, you can put together a nice garland that will beautifully complement the decoration of your apartment or house.
When making snowflakes, you do not need to strive for an ideal that does not exist anyway. Remember that the New Year is a fairy tale and that means any, even the most fabulous snowflake will be beautiful. In addition, if you connect people close and dear to you to this activity, then making snowflakes will be much more fun than if you made them alone. So try and invent your own snowflake patterns.
