Draw three lines parallel to the two sides. The distance between the lines should be the same. Cut the paper along the lines with the scissors. Not reaching the middle of the paper, leave a couple of millimeters uncut, so that the paper does not break up into separate strips.

Open the folded square. Place the square in front of you so that one of the corners of the figure looks at you. Now you can start wrapping the elements of the square. Fold the inner box with a tube and fasten it with a stapler. Flip the snowflake element over the other side. Fold the tube closest to the center of the stripes and fasten them with a stapler. Turn the snowflake element over again and fold the stripes. Thus, bend with fasten all the stripes of one element.

Of the remaining five squares of paper do the same elements. Fold three elements together and fasten them at the base of the stapler. In the same way put another three elements.

Take three long strips of paper. Fold them in half and cut. You get six identical stripes. These stripes make six identical rings. Don't forget to glue the ends. The resulting ring is placed inside each drop and stick.

The remaining nine strips of paper, also folded in half and cut. Small drops are made from the stripes obtained. Then the droplets are collected in hearts. For one heart, two droplets are used. Make six hearts. You should have 6 more droplets left. Each heart is inserted one drop so that a bud of three petals is formed. The obtained buds are glued between the sides of your snowflake.
