Things you will need to make Q-Tip Snowflake Craft

For the background, we used origami paper that we had at home. You can use any paper in any colour, but make sure it is cut to a size of 15 x 15 cm so that it perfectly fits the Q-tip Snowflakes.

How to make the Q-Tip Snowflake Craft

To begin, cut 3 Q-Tip into two halves, making 6 pieces.

Next, cut twelve small Q-tip pieces about 1.5 cm long, cutting slightly below the cotton.

Cutting Q tips in different Lengths

Draw six evenly spaced radial lines on the background sheet, each line being the length of a half Q-tip. Apply glue to the base and spread it evenly using another Q-tip. Applying Glue

One by one, place the Q-tip pieces on the glue and press them firmly.

Arranging Q tip to make the Snowflake Pattern

All the large pieces are glued to the base.

Meanwhile, pour a little glue onto a plate. Then dip the small Q-tip pieces into the glue and place them over the base, ensuring they extend out from the main lines.
