I was blog hopping this morning. Hey, what else does someone do when it's so cold? You can only clean so much : ) It's fun to see other people's projects...find some ideas of your own....give you a project to do.
The crepe paper flowers caught my eye. Probably cause they were shown on a valentine box. I love making valentine boxes! In the past month I have made sure to save any shoe boxes or oatmeal containers we have used. I am not sure if the older kids will need some for school, but if not the little kids and I have a afternoon craft project at least!
They were super easy to make. Find a few different colors of party streamers. Cut about a foot from each. Sew a gathering stitch down the middle(I did it by hand, it didn't take long at all). Then fold the streamer in half at the stitch. Roll into circle. I then glued it on a piece of paper. When the kids get around to making their valentine boxes they can glue the flower on to it.
Here is the blog I found the idea at Today's Fabulous Finds
