Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow - how to make coffee filter snowflakes

Tuesday December 27, 2016 // By Dana Schlingman

So now that you’ve upgraded your home brewing operation, what should you do with all of those extra coffee filters for that old automatic coffee maker?

Use them to make snowflakes, plus it’s a great diversion for kids when end-of-break cabin fever kicks in!

To get started you just need a coffee filter and a pair of scissors:

Step 1: Fold the filter in half
Step 2: Fold the filter in half again (now the filter should be folded into quarters)
Step 3: Fold the filter in half again (now the filter should be folded into eighths)
Step 4: Make cuts along all three edges (slanted rectangles, triangles or heart halves) 

Be careful not to cut off either of the folded edges entirely - otherwise the snowflake will fall apart.

Step 5: When you are done cutting, unfold and enjoy that masterpiece!
Step 6: Curl up with some hot chocolate and read Snowflake Bentley (Written by: Jacqueline Briggs Martin & Illustrated by: Mary Azarian)
