What you’ll need


Directions

    1. Unwrap your HERSHEY’S KISSES candies carefully to avoid tearing the foil. Smooth out the wrapper.
    2. Fold in half diagonally to make a triangle.
    3. Fold in half again, matching the corners on the long edge.
    4. Fold in thirds, pulling the left-hand long edge corner towards the middle, then do the same with the right. You’ll end up with something that resembles an arrow.
    5. Trim the "tails" off the arrow so you have a tall triangle.
    6. Get creative and cut small shapes out of your triangle to make a design or use our template. Remember, all snowflakes are unique!
    7. When you’re finished, carefully unfold your flake.
    8. Attach some string and create a garland or hang them individually from the tree or ceiling.
