Simple Tissue Paper Snowflake Ornament

Make a simple tissue paper snowflake ornament with a cereal box and tissue paper:

I might just be in love with today’s totally impromptu craft!  We made these simple tissue paper snowflakes today after one of the hooligans’ parents surprised us with a very large bag full of of tissue paper earlier this morning..  It was late in the afternoon, and close to home time, but hey, when someone hands you somethin’ like that, you just gotta get crafty.

Plus, the hooligans were so excited about this bag of tissue paper, you’d have thought we’d been given a sack full of new toys.  They couldn’t wait to get their hands on it, so we whipped up a few of these little pretties.

You’re going to love how easy these snowflakes are to make.   All you need are a few narrow strips of cardboard (think cereal box), and some white tissue paper.

For each snowflake, I cut 3 strips of cardboard approx. 1/2 wide by 8 inches long, and I hot-glued them together in snowflake fashion.

Then I cut a couple of sheets of the tissue paper into 4×4 inch squares.  The hooligans brushed a coat of white glue onto their cardboard, and then crumpled up the squares of tissue paper, and stuck them all over their snowflakes.

Aren’t these snowflakes so simple but so pretty?  I think they would look just adorable taped to or hanging in a window!
