Book Page Ornament Snowflakes

Sharing is caring!

This year all over Instagram are these big paper bag snowflakes. They’re cute and would make a perfect addition to your holiday decor. But I wanted to put a twist on them, so I made book page ornament snowflakes instead.

I had lots of left over book pages from my Halloween decor. So I used the same logic from the paper bags and made some big snowflakes.

This DIY is so easy because you only need three things and you probably already have them all at home! Book pages, glue, and scissors.

Book Page Ornament Snowflakes

There are two different ways to make them and they both come out looking pretty similar. You can either fold your book pages in half or in thirds.

Each of them is unique and will look great in your tree or hanging as decor around the house. They also make great gifts!

They turned out so cute and they are the perfect addition to my Christmas tree. I love how big they are, great for filling holes!

You could also add glitter or other embellishments onto these ornaments. I also think they would look great as a gift topper.
