Paper Quilled Snowflakes

Paper Quilled Snowflakes

Use the printer paper and make snowflakes perfect for Christmas and Holiday decorations

What you need

white printer paper
non-cross cut paper shredder
2 toothpicks
1 seed bead
white glue
spray glitter or other glitter
white string


Start by taking the 2 toothpicks and shoving the ends into the seed bead. This can be hard to do so you could also use a chopstick.

Take the paper shredder and shred 2 pieces of paper long-ways. Again you could do this step by hand but I don’t recommend it.

Take a strip of paper and round it between the toothpicks or around the chopstick, until you have it all curled up.

Try to do this tight and straight. Next, release the piece of paper and glue the end down.

Make as many as you need.

Most large snowflakes as shown here take 40-50 rounds. Next, if desired, pinch the end of the circle to get a point and so on.

Once you are done making the circles glue them together in any design. You can make all sorts of snowflake designs.

They are the exactly like real snowflakes.

Once the glue has dried take a piece of white string and tie a loop around the top.

You can either paint with glue and sprinkle glitter, or take it out side and spray it with glitter in a can. Makes great ornaments.


  1. this looks so cool! you dont need to do the toothpick thing if you allready have a quilling tool, and you can get white quilling paper too, but it is cheaper just to cut out white srips.

  2. it really nice for decorations and stuff, and when you have nothing to do you can make some.

  3. i really like this one because i make diffrent shapes like this.
