Recently, I’ve become a little obsessed with learning how to make Pinterest-worthy 3D snowflakes. They are just so beautiful! When I walked into Michael’s the other day and saw these cute little shipping tubes, my mind began to spin. I would make a snowflake garland and fit it inside the tube! It would be such a great teacher gift, or a gift that I could send in the mail. Hooray for alone time at Michael’s!

For these particular snowflakes, I cut the dimension of my paper down to 3.5″ x 11″. I folded it in half first, then folded each section in half until I had 16 even accordion folds.
I read this tutorial from One Dog Woof before starting, and it’s a good one. It’s very clear with good photos.
After making seven, I wove the silver yarn through to complete the garland. And now it also fits perfectly inside the tube!
I also created a round label for the top! Downloadable right here. You’re welcome.
I love this gift for three reasons: 1) garlands are my fave, 2) you can ship it by just wrapping it in brown paper, and 3) it reminds me of those snake-in-a-can tricks that I had as a kid where the snake pops out! Instead, out come snowflakes. SURPRISE!
I hope you try!
