InTroDuctIon This StapleBook is A Collection of SnowFlake Tutorials that provide The Attentive Paper Folder with Very Easy Instructions to Create their own Expansive Collection of Faux SnowFlakes to tape your windows during The Wintery Holiday Season. While The Stipulations for A Traditional Six Armed Snowflake has been well known for many years; This Lesson Book includes Additional Study Guides for A Three Sided Snowflake, A Four Bounded Snowflake, A Snowflake with Five Extremities, A Paper Flake with Seven Facets & An Eight Tentacled Creation. i have also created Instructions for Paper SnowFlakes with Nine, Eleven & Thirteen Symmetrical Wings, But they are Esoteric Monsters that involve considerable superfluous folding & they are nearly impossible to cut out ( ! ) All of my First Tiers of Snowflake Instructions were very difficult to follow, But after reworking them several times, i have finally come up with Instructions that i believe are as easy as they can ever become ( ? ) ! The Instructions for The Three, Four, Six & Eight Fjorded Snowflakes are very Straight Forward; In that you simply, Fold, Fold, Fold, Fold, Fold— Then Cut out a Design; Carefully Unfold It, Smooth it Flat by placing another Sheet of Paper over it, & Finally Rubbing it down thoroughly with The Palm of your Writing Hand. You are then Free to Tape your Unique Creation to a Window Pane. The Instructions for The Five & Seven Branched Snowflakes however are Slightly more Complicated, Owing to The Fact that Five & Seven do Not have The Same Symmetrical Elegance of The Evenly Numbered Flakes. The Three Sided Snowflake is A Curious Exception, Due to its Extreme Austerity. The Five & Seven Examples however were Created So That when it came time to Collapse them into The Traditional IceCream Cone or Pie Slice Triangle— All or Nearly All of The Folds would be PreCreased in their Correct Orientations, So that you would then merely press them together to Make The Desired Final Form. To do this; Requires Considerable PreFolding & Unfolding, Flipping & Flipping The Creation Over & Over, More Folding & Unfolding, And so on. Getting all These Preliminary Steps & Folds Correct is Critical to The Maximum Ease of The Last Folding Step later on ( ! ) Despite all This Care to make The Final Folding ‘Collapse’ as Easy as The Pie Slice that it will look like, There are Two Considerations that make it faintly difficult. The First is The Short Middle Folds made by The First Folding of The Paper in Half along its long Axis; Are Superfluous & Need to be Ignored during The Final Folding, or Collapse ! The Other is The Far End ( Bottom Crease ) ‘HotDog Bun Fold’ that Resembles a Hotdog Bun. This is The Last Folding of The Collapse, & Must be Inverted, So that this Valley Fold becomes a Mountain Fold. All this will be Made Much Clearer when you work your way through The Easy to Follow Illustrated & Annotated Instructions. By The Time you Finish your Eighth or Ninth Snowflake of any given kind, you should be very comfortable with your Efforts.

The Starfish PentaFlake The PentaFlake, Along with The SeptaFlake, make use of a Novel Folding Technique which makes it very easy to ‘Collapse’ the Folding Design into the PreCutting ‘SnowCone’. In order to do this however, you must make numerous Non-Accumulative Folds which Do Not Contribute to the Finished Final Folded ‘SnowCone’. ( It’s looks like a Snowcone or Pie Slice ) Looking through all the Instructions should make this Clear. After making all the Preliminary Folds and Then UnFolding the Sheet of Paper, All the Folds are Correctly Oriented, that is; Folded in the Correct Directions, So that all you have to do is Accordion Collapse it into the Desired Triangle Form.

Be sure to Ignore the Short Midline folds that were inadvertently created during the First Half Sheet Fold. This was Necessary to create all the Mirror folds, but now you have to disregard them, and fold around them !!!

This may look like a lot of wasted tail, But it has to be from the shortest inner leaf !


PAGE SEPTAFLAKE (

The best thing about the septaflake is its subliminal ability to discombobulate the turnabouts ! without counting the arms, it looks wrong & slightly disconcerting, but the viewer wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to immediately identify what it is about the septaflake that is disturbing them !
