December is here, and it’s time for sumptuous feasts and a second batch of presents since your birthday! Before we start shopping for the dinner essentials, lets break out the Christmas decorations first. At Gin & Jacqie, we are all for DIY-ing just about anything that we can. Besides, if it calls for spending less this holiday season, why not give it a shot? To make our paper cut snowflakes, all you need is a pair of scissors and some paper cupcake holders.

Flatten the cupcake holder down, so that you get a circular shape.

Fold your circle in half, four times.

When you have folded your cupcake holders into a thin stack, whip out your scissors and start snipping away at the edges of your folded cupcake holder. Think of it as if you’re creating a human paper chain – the shapes and patterns you cut will reveal itself in full once you unfold the paper. Zig zagged lines, wavy shapes and geometrical points – unleash your inner artist!

Here’s our final result! The best thing about this DIY is that you won’t know the final look until you open up your folded piece – which we think is just as satisfying as unwrapping a present on Xmas day. This makes each piece unique and an absolute fun to work on – get your entire family to join in and you will have enough to adorn your Christmas tree!
