With the cut-out squares of we will make small petals. The small squares are arranged diagonally: this procedure is repeated three times, and in the end you have to get a triangle consisting of several layers. The two outer corners of such a triangle must be folded to the center so that your triangle has a rounded shape.
Tip: To make such figures more comfortable, hold the cloth with a tweezers or clips.
Once the triangle is folding, you need to fix the corners of the .For this, the edge of the future petal must be melted and squeezed together until the fabric is cooled down. As a result, you will get a finished petal.
Here are the following petals form the basis of the snowflake
This procedure needs to be repeated with 11 squares. The resulting petals will be placed on the inside of your future snowflake.
As for external elements, they are created in a similar way. After carrying out the procedures described by us, you have to have 30 more squares, which should be exactly minimized, but omitting the rounding triangles. That is, you will melt triangles with sharp corners .

Attention! It is not necessary to glue the petals, you need to connect only one of the corners.
When the double petals are ready, glued( or sew) the third lobe between two adjacent s. As a result, you will receive an element consisting of three connected petals. In the same way, attach the petals to 12 ready-made elements.
As a result, you have got 12 parts, consisting of three petals .Now you need to pair them together: sew one element over the other and repeat this procedure for the remaining ten figures. You can make the rays longer or give them a non-standard shape: it all depends on your imagination.
The next step is the foundation for the snowflake. To do this, you need to take dense cardboard( or paper) and cut from it a small circle. The size of this circle should be slightly smaller than the size of the central flower for your snowflake. Then take a cloth - and cut from it a circle whose diameter coincides with the central flower.
