Paper

You can use any paper for these snowflakes as long as it's not too thick to fold. Here are a few suggestions to give you some ideas.


Neenah Exact Vellum Bristol, 67 lb, 8.5 x 11 Inches, 250 Sheets, White, 94 Brightness



A lot of sheets of paper for the price, great if you do lots of crafts or need paper for the kids to draw on.

Rectangle shape so will need to cut down to size for snowflakes.

Size 8.5" x 11", 250 sheets per pack.

Has a matte finish and not completely smooth so great for drawing on or using in a printer.

Can be used for lots of other crafts too.


Silver Metallic Paper



This silvery paper will make great snowflakes.

Silver Metallic Shimmer Paper, shiny on both sides.

Rectangle shape so will need to cut down to size for snowflakes.

Size 8.5" x 11", 40 sheets per pack.

Only recommended for laser-jet printers but as you don't need to print directly on the paper should be fine for this project.

Can be used for lots of other crafts too.


Scissors


Fiskars 8 Inch Softgrip Scissors Straight, Stainless Steel



Fiskars make great scissors and I use several pairs from their range for different purposes.

The soft grip makes cutting comfortable, even if there is lots to do.

These are great general purpose scissors.

The long blade makes them great for cutting out strips for paper chains.


Fiskars Pre-School Training Scissors, Color Received May Vary



These Fiskars pre-school training scissors are great for teaching kids how to cut.

They have a lever that opens the scissors automatically so the child can learn the open-close technique of using scissors, once mastered the lever can be flipped up for regular cutting.

Blunt tips and designed to cut only paper for safe learning.

You can't choose your colors but little ones won't really care about the color while they are learning to cut like the big kids.


Darice Paper Edging Scissors, 4-Pack



These Darice paper edging scissors make fancy edging easy.

A set of four scissors with different patterns as seen in the image on the left.

The scissors have the pattern printed on them so you know what the cut will look like.

The cutting edge is metal not plastic so you get a nice clean cut.

I have several pairs of these scissors and find them great for cutting most paper.

Suitable for children over 6 but these are not a toy and should be used with supervision.
