Gather four pieces of straw at a time and tie them together. Secure the joints onto the template with pins.
Divide the bundle of four straws into two bundles of two straws each. Gather two straws with the next two straws across. Tie them together at the next point on the template.
Remove the snowflake from the template and trim the ends into points.
Make other variants by trimming at an angle towards the middle.
