Christmas Origami Instructions: Snowflake (Jared Needle)

Recommended paper: Pacon Paper Squares @, Pacon website

Paper used in this video: 24cm square of kami (9.5in)
Finished model: height of 2cm (0.75in), diameter of 7.5cm (3in)


Thanks for the pointer to Pacon paper, Sara - looks like I can order it via the US Amazon store (not found anywhere in the UK, alas). Great snowflake - must fold that NOW!

...just checked the link - the bad news is that it's sold via a 3rd-party seller (School Specialty) who don't ship to the UK. Definitely a paper to watch out for though. Do you know of a UK supplier?

Sorry, I don't. Thus far I've had a friend send me the paper from the US. That makes it a lot more expensive, but I do love that paper.

Is it possible to use kami or copy paper for that model and not get a hole? Like, maybe folding it slowly will help?

folding slowly can help,though there will be a hole there.i have folded it a couple times,and always ended up with a hole,but its hard not to get it.

Ok. Thanks for the reply, I will fold it, see how big my hole is and maybe I'll ask for pacon paper for Christmas! :D

Hi Sara,

Thank you for creating and sharing this instructional video with us. I always wait for Christmas themed origami designs from you......will be folding a couple of these for my living room window.

Btw...speaking of Christmas themed decoration, I folded Paolo Bascetta's Star to put up as a tree topper. Thanks for the links to the instructional video! http://origamiancy.c...

i have my fingers crossed that Llopio's Moment of Truth is the next model.
Have been looking foreward to that one ever since i made the last waltz

Before Christmas 2010? No, I fear not. After all, Christmas is in less than a week. :)
But I will make more Christmas origami videos... next year. Do you have any specific models in mind?

How long does it take for you to make an instructional video? How long does it take you to make a complex model's instructional video?
