It is also a fun and creative element for both children and seniors as they can decorate the place with different options like for Christmas, on table to serve food, as crystals droops and much more.
Snowflakes are in radical symmetry which means that it will have all the parts of snowflake shapes to cut out and size same around their centers. There are various other things in the world of nature that are radically symmetrical like the bicycle wheels, oranges some flowers, pumpkins etc. The symmetry of snowflakes pattern is in form of hexagon that means it will have six parts or dimensions. To create a snowflakes Paper Pattern, it needs to be cut into 6 prongs, and every single part will be the same. Then the paper is folded into 6 pie-shaped pieces and every piece should then be cut together. Six similar parts are obtained that unfolds into a hexagon snowflake and you are done.
