First Step fold and cut, triangular snowflake patterns are basic designs intended for absolute beginners, preschool age children and and people with special needs. First Step designs are extremely simple, elementary level patterns which use very basic cutout shapes to help introduce math concepts to very young children, the developmentally challenged, and people with special needs.

Most First Step color me patterns have just two or three basic cut shape (circle, square, triangle) which most beginners should be able to master fairly quickly.

First Step Four Sided Folding Patterns

Most First Step patterns have just two or three basic cut shapes (circle, square, triangle). These simple shapes are repeated over 2, 3, 4, and 6 sided designs to demonstrate how varied results can be obtained for different folds using similar cuts.

For example:

First Step 2 Sided fold First Step 3 Sided fold First Step 4 Sided fold First Step 6 Sided fold
First Step 2 Sided outline First Step 3 Sided outline First Step 4 Sided outline First Step 6 Sided outline
The design #2001 forms a cross or an "X" shape when folded with the 2 sided pattern. But when applied to a 3 sided pattern #3001 the same "X" transforms into three arrows converging. When #2001 is applied to the 4 sided pattern
#4001, the cross or "X" resembles the quadrant cross.
when #2001 is applied to a
#6001 6 sided pattern, the shape resembles the Union Jack which is a combination of several different crosses.
