First Step 3-Sided Triangular Snowflakes

First Step 3 Sided Outlines

These tri-sided snowflakes are very easy patterns which can be applied to any number of art projects. I initially designed them with absolute beginners, preschool age children and and people with special needs in mind, but the patterns can be used for virtually any hobby whether tapestry, wood working and stenciling. These designs are extremely simple which use basic cutout shapes easily mastered by youngsters to whom you wish to introduce math concepts in an entertaining manner.

X-Tremely Easy Patterns

The designs on this page were made from extremely easy 3-sided snow flake folding patterns. It is quite fun to discover the how such fairly complex patterns can arise out of just a few simple scissor cuts. Visit the 2, 4 and 6 sided versions of similar folds to experiment.

These simple shapes really help clarify how much difference there can be when simple directional fold are applied to similar shapes.

For instance, take design #3001, which forms a cross or an "X" shape when folded with the 2 sided pattern. The same "L shape", or straight edge, when applied to a 3 sided pattern #2001 transformed into a form that looks like three arrows converging. When applied to the 4 sided pattern #4001, the cross or "x" resembles the quadrant cross (a little bit). Then, lastly, when applied to a #6001 6 sided pattern, the shape resembles the Union Jack which is a combination of several different crosses.

All of the patterns have folding cut out versions as well as stencil versions. Have some fun with the educational process and give the child one of each of the 2,3,4,and 6 sided patterns so they can discover for themselves the differences.
