Sometimes it's best to go back to basics. While doing some brainstorming in the studio, we decided that nothing beats old school construction paper. And who doesn’t love making a simple paper snowflake? (My second grade teacher would be so proud!) Our construction paper snowflakes are a great way to dress up a gift box or plain wrapping paper, and take just about a minute to make.

– construction paper
– scissors
– tape

Fold up your piece of colored construction paper. Cut your snowflake shapes. I went for all triangles for geometric patterns. Attach to your wrapped present or box top with scotch tape and you’re all set.

We love the places where pieces of the snowflake stick up or out, giving your package a little more dimension.
