3-D Snowflake

I found these cool 3-D snowflakes on youtube.  I just had to make them.  Here is the link for the video, I will also try to give instructions below. 

First select your paper.  Two sided, because you will see both sides.  Cut to 7 1/2 cm.  (3 inches will work fine too.) 
Fold in half and then fold in half again.  Cut from bottom fold to the top to the two single folds in straight lines 5 times.  Do not cut all the way through, leave about 1 cm from the edge.
This is how it will look when you open it up.

Glue each end alternating directions, until all side are connected like above.  Glue dots work well for this. 

 Arrange how you would like it to be.  Then use glue dots to connect together.

These will go on our tree this year along with some other things I am making.  All of our decorations are all hand made.  I will post more on those later. Some we made last year and others like the above were made this year.
