How To Make It

  1. Print template(s) you want to use. (Note: The smaller two work well if you’re using 8 1/2″ squares to make snowflakes, while the others are suited to larger squares.)

2. For each snowflake, fold a paper square in half once, and then in half again—so that it resembles a small card with the fold at the top.

3. Next, fold the paper diagonally so that the upper right corner meets the lower left corner, as shown.

4. Fold the paper in half diagonally once again, this time from left to right, and trim the longer triangular bottom off, as shown.

5. Undo the last fold, and trace a Mickey head along one of the side edges, as shown. Cut along the trace line and remove the cutout.

6. Snip off the upper tip of the paper, and then cut a deep V-shaped notch in the bottom of the paper, as shown.

7. Cut random smaller notches in the paper edges around the Mouse head. Then, unfold the paper to reveal your Mickey snowflake. Feel free to experiment with new designs, perhaps even cutting two or more Mickey heads in one snowflake.

8. Thread a piece of thin ribbon through the top of each snowflake, and knot the ends together to create a loop for hanging.

Have fun making these magic Mickey snowflakes this winter.

About Jennifer Retzlaff

My name is Jennifer Retzlaff and I became a lifelong Disney fan during my first trip to Walt Disney World in 6th grade. From that moment, Disney became a big part of my life. I live in Iowa with my husband and two kids who are growing up too quickly for my liking. I started introducing my love for Disney early to my family with a Disney honeymoon and then trips when our youngest of 18 months. Since then, our family has been to Walt Disney World over five times and we continue to plan and dream for the next trip. I love the magic that Disney brings to people through the theme parks, cruises, adventures and movies they create. As a teacher, I try to bring that magic into my classroom to help kids believe that “If You Can Dream It, You Can Do It.” I recently reached a dream of mine as I joined Magic Vacation Planner as a personal travel advisor. With this team, I can now help others plan magical vacations. As a passionate writer, I also have my own blog at magicalvacationsbyjen which is also where you can follow me on instagram for trip reviews along with tips and tricks for your next magical vacation.
