Cut the white paper in half lengthwise. You'll use each piece to make one snowflake. Accordion-fold one piece into half-inch pleats and then cut a notch on each long side at the center. Then cut a piece of yarn and tie it around the folded paper at the notches.
Make various cuts on all sides of the folded paper.
Put glue along the outside edge of one pleat, place the end of a piece of yarn on the glue, and then gently pull the snowflake open to sandwich the glue between the pleats. Glue together the opposite side. Make three additional snowflakes.
Staple the ends of the tagboard strip together to make a circle. Punch four holes along the bottom of the circle and tie the yarn to the holes.
Punch four holes along the top of the tagboard loop and thread yarn through to make a hanger.
Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
