Okay, so only a couple days till Halloween- still don't have any decorations up? Well here's a spooky spiderweb you can make with a sheet of printer paper and a pair of scissors! Or, if you're really adventurous you could even use a large sheet of butcher paper...or tissue paper...you could get really creative with this!
I figured this out by playing around with the pattern you use for making snowflakes, and here is what I came up with:
1. Fold corner of 8x11 sheet of printer paper down so sides align, cut off excess (the rectangle on the bottom) to form an even triangle.
3. With point of triangle down, fold in opposite corners so that they overlap (see photo above for fold lines, see photo below for folded shape)
4. Cut top of your folded shape in a shallow point, being sure to cut through every layer, then make multiple slits on each side at a perpendicular angle to the edge.
