Here's a simple plug-in to quickly create a paper cut out snow flake, it supposed to simulate the folding and cutting paper.
Result is not super crisp, but you could always use a larger radius to create larger snow-flake then downscale it afterwards.

Uploaded version 2 which allows first choice of folds to be 12ths (Actual snow flake option because it makes for a 6 symmetric folded pattern).

Tin, could you explain a little further on how to do any image? "Clear top half before flipping". Top half of what? Nothing I tried worked. The image I start with is ignored by the filter to make the snowflake as it opens as another image.

If you use another image (your own image), then you just use "Unfold" option right away and not use "Create New Fold".
It'll unfold your image.
The "Clear top half" is what the plug-in does for you, you don't need to do anything, you just need to Choose "Unfold" and select the number of leafs/fold option.
