First Step elementary color book snowflake patterns help introduce concepts of symmetry.
Color book First Step snowflakes are Scissorcraft's easiest, most basic pattern designs intended for absolute beginners.
These snowflake patterns are completed outlined versions of the fold and cut patterns available in folding patterns section.
Snowflake fold patterns consist of simple cuts; circles, squares, triangles, etc. Most beginners should be able to master these easy designs fairly quickly.
First Step patterns demonstrate how varied results can be obtained when applying different folds repeated over various templates.
For example: The simple "L" shape of pattern 2001 transforms into four uniquely different patterns when applied to 2, 3, 4, and 6 sided designs.
|The folding design #2001 forms a plus sign shape or an "X" when folded with the 2 sided pattern.||When applied to a 3 sided pattern #3001 the design transforms into three arrows converging.||When applied to the 4 sided pattern #4001 the plus sign or "X" resembles a quadrant cross.||When applied to the #6001, 6 sided pattern, the shape resembles the Union Jack which is a combination of several different cross shapes.|
Scissors are the primary tool for cutting paper snowflakes. Scissors come in a variety of shapes and sizes and each serve specific purposes. Keep a selection of different sizes for multi-tasking. It is very important for your cutting instrument to have sharp blades. Stainless-steel, titanium-enhanced blades that stay sharp through heavy use are best.
