How to Make 3D Snowflakes with Cricut

The thing I like most about snowflakes beside no two being alike is that they are great for winter decor. They work for Christmas, Hannakah, New Years, or a general winter theme. 

Using any mirrored image, you can turn it into a 3D shape. Snowflakes work for this idea. In this post I will show how I took a simple snowflake cut in Design Space and by adding a score line then making multiple cuts, it can be turned into a 3D hanging decor. 

Make one large snowflake to hang in a doorway or from a light fixture, or you can make multiples to hang all together to cover a larger area or make smaller versions for Christmas tree ornaments.

Read to the end of the post where you can enter to win a Cricut Maker Machine. 

Materials:

  • glitter cardstock - 2 sheets
  • snowflake
  • Personal Cutting Machine - I used a Cricut Explore Air 2
  • glue
  • twine, string, or fishing line to hang the Snowflake

I wanted to thank Cricut for providing my cutting machine in order to create posts using their products.

Directions:

This is an Explore Air 2 - Easy one-Cut Holiday project. One shape that is cut multiple times to make the ornament. In the video below you will see how you set up one snowflake to cut and then you can tell your machine to cut multiples of that one image. The software knows where to place it on the mat to use the optimal amount of surface space without wasting any materials. 

The following video will show you how I set up the snowflake file in Design Space.

Hi. I love your 3D snowflake but I can't seem to find the one you used in your Dec. 13, 2017 tutorial (which I just saw today 1/5/18). My daughter loves snowflakes and I thought immediately of her when I saw this. What a great idea. Can you provide me the image number and maybe I can go from there. I can't find it on Cricut DS. Thanks.

I love this! Your glitter cardstock was perfect for this project.

That is so beautiful! Pinned to try on my new Cricut that Santa's supposed to bring...

I love your snowflakes! So pretty.
