How To Make Snowflakes Out Of Paper Bags. The method for making these showstopper snowflakes is the quite simple. In case you’ve been skimming here are the steps needed to make a diy paper snowflake:
I truly did make up the designs as i went. Start by placing your first paper bag on a table with the flap side down and the opening of the bag facing you. Next glue along the base of the top bag, and right up the middle again and lay another bag onto this one.
